About Me


Hi, my name is Mavis Arey and I enjoy teaching here at Mackenzie Mountain School. My husband and I have made Norman Wells our home for the past 21 years. We enjoy going to our summer cabin on the Beaufort Sea, a little place called Shingle Point in the Yukon. I have a grandaughter, Keira who lives in Inuvik and another, Chasity who lives in Edmonton with my grandson, Jacks. I attended the University of Saskatchewan to complete my Bachelor of Education Degree. For me, teaching is a passion, followed by a deep desire to love, nurture, and inspire children of all ages. An ongoing goal I have is to effectively teach, but also instill a passion for learning in every one of my students.
