Welcome to Grade 2



Mrs. Stephanie Baird

Hello 2B families!  My name is Stephanie Baird and I am so excited to introduce myself as your child's grade two teacher.  This is my second time teaching grade two and I absolutely love this grade.  There are so many fun topics to explore!Though last year was my first year teaching elementary, I have spent 10 years as an early childhood educator and have lots of experience working with children in an educational setting.  I am also a Therapeutic Recreation Specialist which is a fancy way of saying that I use recreation to find ways to remove barriers from and enhance educational pursuits.  So, if it sounds like we play a lot of games... we do!  But there is always a reason behind it. I have an open-door policy and welcome any feedback, questions or otherwise.  I can be reached at sbaird or by calling the school at 403-948-7030.


Mr. Scott Blackwood

Hello!My name is Scott Blackwood and I come to Ralph McCall School with 7 years of teaching experience both nationally and abroad (Southern England). That combined with my earlier roots in neuropsychology make me an enthusiastic educator who looks forward to learning all that I can about your child so that I can play an active role in supporting them to realise their full potential. If you hear that we spend time thinking about our brain connections and how our mindset matters, it is because I do speak about this to my students. I am aware of the value of creating positive brain connections that can support positive learning outcomes. I believe in transparent communication and have an open-door policy. I welcome you to reach out to me via staff email at sblackwood@rockyview.ab.ca or conversely via the school telephone at 403–948–7030. Please allow a 24 – hour reply window.
