It was a bit of a homecoming for the two newest teachers at the Bluffton School last week as both have either attended or taught at the school previously.

Darla Hohn will be teaching Language Arts to junior high and Grade 6 students this year. The University of Alberta graduate spent the first number of her school years in Bluffton and was a student there from Kindergarten to Grade 9.

“I’m originally from the Bluffton/Rimbey area and actually went to school here as a student,” she said. “I moved away for about six years to Calgary and moved back, went to school to become a teacher and now live in Rimbey.”

She said she always enjoyed living in Bluffton and with plenty of friends and family in the area, added that she is very excited to be returning to the area.

“I’m very glad to be back. Bluffton is a great community,” Hohn said. “I know lots of people here and am connected with family in the area so it’s very comfortable and very familiar.”

Dan Walker has also had previous experience at the Bluffton School as he spent his first year as a teacher there following his graduation from the University of Alberta six years ago.

Walker grew up in the Pigeon Lake area where he attended elementary school. This year he will be teaching Physical Education, Computers and all junior high Social Studies.

“I taught at Eckville School for three years and then moved to the Lacombe Outreach School,” he said. “Then this job came up and who doesn’t want to come back to Bluffton?”

Walker said he thoroughly enjoyed his time at the Outreach School in Lacombe but is very excited to be working in Bluffton.
