About Me

Hello! My name is Josh Elke, this is my fourth year of teaching and my second year in Norman Wells. I am originally from Yellowknife, received my bachelors of education from the University of Alberta and did my first two years of teaching in the UK. This year I will be teaching high school math, health, photography and robotics. When I’m not at the school I can usually be found around the rink as I am obsessed with hockey and I am very excited to get a school hockey team going this year! I am also a relatively experienced electric guitar player so let me know if you ever want to jam. I am very passionate about teaching and the importance of numeracy in day to day life. Mathematics is often criticized as that school subject that everyone dreads, so I have made it my goal in life to make math not … that scary? I am very excited to start another year here in the Sahtu and with the excellent team we have at Mackenzie Mountain School I am positive we will have a fantastic 2017 – 2018 school year!
