Hello and welcome to 5A!

My name is Alyann Paular. I will be your child's teacher for this school year! So a little bit about myself, this is my second year teaching at Sacred Heart. I graduated from University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Education in Secondary route. My major is in Social studies and my minor is Moral/Religious Education. I have a certification in Catholic Intellectual tradition from St. Joseph's College. Beside my highschool practicum experiences, I was teaching Catechism (Grade1, 3 & Grade 6) at St. Joseph's Basilica in Edmonton for 5 years.  I have a passion for teaching in a Catholic environment because I want to freely show the beauty of our Catholic faith and help students integrate into their daily lives. I genuinely desire for my students to be self-reflective individuals while looking beyond themselves. Like St. John Paul II, I want to build my students’ self-confidence and help them to dream. I pray my teaching style, which is student-centered and discovery learning, will create a positive impact and a supportive environment for my students. 

A few years ago, I was working as a nurse. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from University of Calgary. A lot of people ask me about the huge switch. It's a very long story but to keep it short, I always say this: I fell in love with nursing but God called me to be a bridge for His children. With the help of my nursing background, my ultimate goal for this school year (with God's help) is to prevent COVID from entering into my classroom and spreading to the community. Your child's health and safety always come first. They will be sanitizing and/or washing their hands frequently. I will be sanitizing their tables whenever they leave for recess or lunch. I tried to create 2m space at the front of the classroom for extra safety measures. As you can tell, I take your child's safety seriously.

More random facts! Number one, I used to be a competitive dancer and choreographer. I was scouted but my parents didn't see it as a long-term investment. Number 2, if you meet me in person, I might look a lot younger than you expect. Number three, I drive to Sacred Heart from Abbotsford. 

Again, I had a lovely time meeting my students! With God's help, I pray I get to meet you all someday. Have a wonderful weekend!

May God continue to smile upon your hard work,

Miss Alyann Paular

Prayer takes many forms: singing, silence, speaking, suffering, etc.  Prayer is a personal and intimate experience, but also a unifying communal experience.  We practice the prayers below as many voices sharing their hearts with the Lord, while joining our voices together in harmonized words.

November morning prayer:

 

 

Eternal Father, 

I offer Thee the Most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, 

In union with the masses said throughout the world today,

For all the holy souls in purgatory, 

For sinners everywhere, 

For sinners in the universal church,

Those in my own home and within my family. Amen.

October morning prayer:

Almighty God, giver of all that is good, we thank You for the precious gift of human life:

    For life in the womb, coming from your creative power,
    For the life of children, making us glad with their freshness and promise,
    For the life of young people, hoping for a better world,
    For the life of people who are disabled, teaching us that every life has value,
    For the life of the elderly, witnessing to the ageless values of patience and wisdom.

Like Blessed Mary, may we always say “YES” to Your gift. May we defend it and promote it from conception to its natural end. And bring us at last, O Father, to the fullness of eternal life in Jesus Christ, our Lord.
Amen

September morning prayer:

We will be rotating "Our Father", "Hail Mary", and "Glory Be" prayers.
