About Me

Hello. I’m Mr. Verklan and I have the privilege to be teaching at Joseph Welsh in Grade 5. I have been a teacher for 8 years and have been lucky to be teaching at Joseph Welsh for the past 7. I am originally from a small town in North East Saskatchewan. I received my teaching degree at the University of Alberta. Before I attended the U of A, I went to Grant Macewan, where I played hockey for their mens hockey program. When I am not teaching, I am spending time with my wife, Jaclyn, son, Dax and daughter Ryleigh. Another passion I have is endurance sports and physical fitness. My favorite endurance sport is triathlon. I love endurance sports, because they require planning, discipline, consistency and mental strength. Thanks for stopping by and getting to know a little about me.
