My name is Barbara Gresham and I look forward to meeting and working with all of your children.

Before coming to After School Care I was a preschool teacher for 12 years.  I was at the McKenzie Lake Preschool for 2 years and before that worked at the Parkland Preschool for 10 years.  Before the preschool I worked at a group home as a youth counselor for 18 years, but decided a change was in order.   When the opportunity to teach preschool came, I was very excited to start a new chapter in my life.  I have my diploma in Child and Youth Care work from MRU which enables me to work with both small children up to teenagers.  In addition to my previous employment, I was very involved with my children’s activities by volunteering in their school and with their hockey and ringette teams.

I am originally from Calgary and my husband and I have lived in the community of Parkland for 17 years.  I have a daughter who is 19, a son who is 18 and, another daughter who is 16 years old. Yep, three teenagers in the house…

I love to travel, especially to the ocean, and love my time working out, hiking and doing anything outside.  Spending time with family and friends is very important to me as well.

I very much enjoy spending my days with such great young, honest minds and love the uniqueness of each and everyone of them.
