About Me

My name is Melissa Jacob and this year I’m teaching Grade 1. I grew up in Bonnyville and have only moved away for the time it took to get my Bachelor of Education. Upon receiving my degree I taught Kindergarten here at Duclos for 2 years. After this I took time to stay at home and raise my children. I returned to teaching 2 ½ years ago by substituting in grades K-12. I live on an acreage just outside of town with my husband and 4 children. My eldest child attends H.E. Bourgoin School and is in Grade 5. My other 3 children all attend Duclos in Grades 3, 2 and Kindergarten. We also have 2 dogs and 2 cats. As a family we enjoy being outdoors as much as possible. In the winter we like to toboggan, snowmobile and go skiing. During the summer we spend most of our time camping, fishing and playing on the water. We also grow a rather large garden which we then use for canning a variety of goodies.
