Jillisa Doherty

Hello Bert Ambrose School Community!
My name is Jillisa Doherty and I am teaching a grade 1 / 2 split at Bert Ambrose this year.   I am a new teacher, only in my second year of teaching, but I have always loved working with children. After I graduated high school, I lived in Europe as a nanny for a year and volunteered at a Montessori school there.  When I returned to Canada, I attended Vancouver Island University, followed by Northern Lights College and completed my teaching certification through the AHCOTE program here in Fort St. John.  I have lived in Fort St. John with my husband for 14 years now. Wow! It is incredible how fast the time flies! I am a mom of 2 wonderful children, Brooke who is 6 years old and Logan who is 5, and they are the light of my life. When I am not busy learning and playing with my students in class, I enjoy laughing and playing with my children at home.  I also enjoy playing the piano, crafting and being in nature. I am looking forward to getting to know everyone in the Gators community and I am so happy to be a part of such an amazing school!
