My name is Kathy Samson and I teach 1/2 time Grade 6 (Science, LA, & Math) and 1/2 time Jr. High Home Ec. and Sr. High Foods. This is my 23rd year teaching here at Tro-Val. I previously taught at Holden and Torrington, Pontmain (here in Trochu) and Three Hills in our school division.
I am a wife of 35 years to Eldon and a mother to Heather and Brett who received all their education here in Trochu. Eldon is a gas plant operator for Ember Resources and works southeast of Three Hills. Heather is married to Paul Sywanyk and they live between Rocky Mountain House and Caroline on a farm. They don't have any children but have a zoo of animals. Dogs, cats, horses, sheep, and chickens. They are both employed in Rocky Mountain House. Our son Brett is a Journeyman Electrician and works for Stuart Olsen Electric out of Red Deer. He currently is working on a project for Meg Energy at Christina Lake, Alberta.
When I'm not teaching (or marking LOL) I love to quilt or sew. I also enjoy golfing, walking, traveling, reading, cooking, camping and spending time with my family and friends.
Radium Hot Springs, BC is near and dear to my heart and I love spending as much time there as I can.
