Success Story


QUINN HEALY, B.Ed / B.Arts Graduate

On behalf of the Saddle Lake Post Secondary Program I would like to introduce one of our 2014 Graduates, Quinn Healy.  I reached out to Quinn and asked her if she would be interested in submitting a paper to highlight her recent educational successes.  Quinn has graciously accepted and has submitted the following.  I do encourage our Saddle Lake Post Secondary Graduates to do the same, as it gives others who are thinking about continuing their education, that extra support.  Give me a call and let me know, if you are interested in being showcased on our blog.

Quinn Healy
Quinn Healy (Stamp), B.ED / B.A History

Hi there! My name is Quinn Healy and over the past 8 years, on and off, I have had the privilege of being sponsored by Saddle Lake Post-Secondary to complete my dreams of becoming a teacher. This was a long process for me but through the support of the Saddle Lake Post Secondary Program, I was able to explore my dreams and passions to find the areas in which I excelled.

I always knew I wanted to teach, to me it was a calling, a vocation, not just a job. I firmly believe that through education children are empowered to become their best selves. I am proud to be an educator who can help facilitate this belief in children, while teaching them valuable lessons about the world through the mandated curriculum. I am also a proud Aboriginal Educator. The district I teach in encourages that we teach from a First Nations perspective. Many of my colleagues didn’t understand what that means or how to go about doing so. I am no expert, yet, but I really pride myself on connecting my Aboriginal beliefs and knowledge in the classroom and helping children understand a different point of view, in connection with the mainstream teachings. Through this passion, I have been able to see not only my students feel connected to material in ways they may have not before, but I have seen my colleagues begin to think and process information differently in terms of their teaching and their own worldviews!

Thanks to the belief I had in myself, the support of SLPS and the support of those around me, my dreams became a reality. This journey was not always easy. My first degree in history came with many, many hours of reading, research and papers and the struggle at the time was very REAL! However, when I pushed deep within myself and knew this journey was a marathon, I gained the confidence and pride to know not only could I attain my dreams, but I was worth becoming what I knew I could be.  For anyone thinking of beginning their journey of post-secondary education, I encourage you to start. Jut start. Start believing you’re worth it, that you can do it and eventually, like me, you’ll look back and you won’t believe it at times, but you will be exactly who and what you dreamed you could be!
