Hello, my name is Staci Bailey and I am a proud Fort McMurrayite! Born and raised here in the lovely city of Fort McMurray that I am happy to call home and now raising my family in. I am a product of the Fort McMurray Public School District and cannot believe that now I am on the other side educating the students that come up through our amazing schools. I have worked here at McTavish for several years, filling in as a substitute or maternity leaves for many of the staff members and as an Educational Assistant before I got my teaching degree. I also stayed in town to complete my degree with the collaborative Bachelor of Education program at Keyano through the University of Alberta. I am thrilled to be teaching the Cosmetology program here at McTavish High School; I would have loved a program like this when I was in high school and could foster my love of learning about hair, makeup, and beauty routines. I am excited to start up this program and teach the students that beauty ultimately comes from within and have fun experimenting together with the new trends and styles that are rapidly changing around us. I am so lucky to blend two things that I am so passionate about; teaching and cosmetology! I’m ready and ecstatic to begin another year here and meet many new faces at the amazing school I call home!
