About Our Team

Hello! My name is Alison Saunders.  I have been teaching as a Learning Support/Literacy teacher at Sarah Thompson since it opened and have also taught grades 2-5, Junior High Humanities, and French as a Second Language.  I currently work part-time providing literacy intervention four mornings a week.  I love supporting our students on their journeys to becoming competent, confident, and enthusiastic readers.  I live in Calgary with my husband and kids (who are six and eight).  I am excited to be supporting students in their literacy and numeracy development this year!


Hello, my name is Shelagh Winkler and I am a Learning Support/Literacy teacher here at Sarah Thompson School.  I have been a part of the STS staff for the past 3 years and have enjoyed being a part of such an amazing and caring school community.  My husband and I have 3 children and have lived in the Langdon area for 25 years.  I have taught within Rocky View Schools for over 25 years as a classroom teacher in grades 2-5, Early Literacy teacher and most recently a Learning Support teacher for grades K-5.  Over the years, I have gained extensive experience and a passion for supporting students with the complex process of learning to read.  I consider it such a pleasure to work with our young readers and writers each day!
