Mme Natalie Pathirana


Phone: 780-467-5143


My name is Natalie Hänninen-Pathirana, and I will be teaching grade 6 for the 2019-2020 school year. I have been at École Campbelltown for 11 years and have taught Grades 2, 3 and 6 in that time. I am currently working on my Masters in Education in “Études en langue et culture” (Language and Cultural studies) at the University of Alberta’s Campus Saint-Jean. I mostly grew up in Québec, however also spent some of my childhood in Ontario and New Brunswick. I have been in Alberta for almost 20 years ago now! How time flies!

I speak English and French fluently, a little bit of Spanish, and Finnish and Portuguese somewhat awkwardly. Nonetheless, I love languages and immensely enjoy being in multilingual and multicultural environments!

I love my job and look forward to an exciting new challenge in the upcoming school year.

You can reach me by email at or call me at the school at (780) 467-5143.

The grade 6 classes will be using Google Classroom this year. You will receive instructions on how to access this site in September.

Looking forward to a great year,

Mme Pathirana
