About Candida Shepherd

Tan’si. My name is Candida Shepherd. I am a jr/sr high school teacher in Sherwood Park. I specialize in Special Education and I am the First Nations, Metis and Inuit lead teacher. Currently, I work for the Government of Alberta as a Curriculum Consultant for the First Nations, Métis and Inuit Branch. I am a long-time member of Sacred Heart Church of the First Peoples, serving both on the Pastoral Parish Committee and as President of the Catholic Woman’s League. As a proud member of the Opitemisiwak Metis Nation of Alberta here in District 11, it is my pleasure to share my culture and to share my journey as a knowledge-seeker.
I live in Sherwood Park with my husband, my son and my daughter. I am also the mom of 2 big-breed dogs and two lazy cats. I am looking forward to my time as part of Edmonton’s Catholic Social Services.
