Tigist started working in the field of educating children over fifteen years ago after graduating from Centennial College with her Early Childhood Education diploma. She joined the BrightPath family in 2007 and is the Director of our Marlborough Centre.
Tigist’s favourite part about being a BrightPath Director is the interaction between children, families and staff. She believes that she has the best job in the world because she gets to enjoy children’s laughter all day while helping them get ready for the future. It is her philosophy that a solid foundation in a child’s development at an early age has a profound impact on their future successes. She always appreciates the support, brainstorming and networking she receives from both staff and parents.
Born in Ethiopia, Tigist speaks 4 languages – English, Italian, Amharic and Tigrigna. She lived in Toronto for ten years prior to relocating to Calgary. Tigist and her husband have been married for nineteen years and are proud parents to two daughters and a son. In her spare time, she enjoys cooking, baking and listening to music.
