About Me

Hello Glendale Community!

My name is Mr. Dan Reitsma and I am very happy to be one of the team of teachers at Glendale Sciences and Technology School for the 2017-2018 school year.  I have the privilege of teaching Math and Science with the Grade 8 classes as well as CTS (woodworking) and Outdoor Education for options as well as PE.  I have been married for 22 years to my wonderful wife Delia and we have three amazing daughters. One daughter is in Grade 12 in Lacombe, one daughter in her first year of College at RDC, and another in her third year at RDC. We live on our family farm West of Blackfalds where we enjoy raising elk.  I have 24 years of carpentry experience as well as running a taxidermy business during my ‘spare’ time.  I enjoy outdoor education, sports, camping, fishing, photography, carpentry and travel.  I have taught English in China for six summers and found this to be a very rewarding experience.  I look forward to the following year at Glendale and believe that this too will be a great experience.  Please stop in and say hello.  I love getting to know the family that supports each student.  Feel free to contact me at any time either by phone at the school (340-3100) or at my home phone (403-885-4398).  You can also reach me by email at: dan.reitsma@rdpsd.ab.ca 

Thank you,

Mr. Dan Reitsma
