I have been a teacher since 1998. My first years of teaching were in a hairdressing school in Winnipeg. From 2001 to 2004 I worked as an Education Assistant and as a Job Mentor at RAEC. In 2004 I completed my Bachelor of Education degree and began teaching at RAEC as an English teacher. I completed a Master’s degree in education in 2018, and my research focused on well-being in schools. I am passionate about our environment and have served on the Altona Community Action Network and Boomerang Bags Altona. I care deeply about how we take care of people and our planet, and am interested in finding ways to help students become deeply engaged in their learning. I look forward to working with you!

Rae-Ann Estwick

I am a former RAEC graduate with the class of 2003. I have personally experienced the challenges and victories of being an adult learner. I have worked at RAEC since 2010. I was an educational assistant until 2016 when I transitioned into the role of administrative assistant. I love that my role allows me to welcome you to our centre and that I can help you get started in your educational journey. If you have a question, I am a great resource. Please don’t be shy to approach me because I truly enjoy helping students and connecting with people. I am passionate about issues such as intersectional feminism, LGBTQS2+ advocacy, world issues and politics. In my free time, I love spending time in forests and nature in general. I love road trips across the beautiful landscapes that our country has. I am always longing to be near (or in) lakes and rivers. Ontario holds a piece of my heart and is where I feel the most content and at peace. I love music and listening to my son play a variety of musical instruments, watching him play sports, and spending time with my wonderful dog, Storm.

Lisa Isaak Eisbrenner

I have been teaching at RAEC since 2012. I grew up in the Altona area, and moved back specifically for this – my dream – job. Working in an alternative setting was always my dream, and I feel very fortunate to have been able to make my home at RAEC. I am very passionate about math and science and the teaching of the two, and I am excited to help you discover how you are already a scientist and mathematician!

I parent two young children along with my partner Kris, am a lover of all things nature (except for ticks. I have no love for ticks), and strongly believe in working together with all humans to build a better world for everyone. I am passionate about intersectional feminism, using my privilege to advocate for marginalized groups and have a wide variety of passions and hobbies that you will probably hear about because I like to share my excitement with others! I look forward to learning about your passions, hobbies, and the things that make you YOU!

Mary Link

I have worked as an Educational Assistant at RAEC since 2013 and prior to that I worked at the Gretna School. I really enjoy my job and feel very privileged to collaborate with caring staff. I like to have fun while learning and am enthusiastic about helping students with their academics while caring about their well-being. My goal as an EA is to help you feel welcome and comfortable in this space, to build relationships and support you in your learning so you can achieve your goals. I look forward to meeting you and celebrating your achievements.

I live in the country and love the outdoors. I enjoy spinning around with my quad, gardening, doing yardwork, camping, kayaking and going on adventures with family and friends. I have two adult sons who bring me much joy and keep me cooking substantial amounts of food when they come home. :) 


Coralie Potetz

My name is Coralie Potetz and I am a teacher at RAEC. I am originally from Saskatchewan, I moved to Manitoba in 2014 to be closer to family that moved here.

I am also a parent, student, and a wife; I love all of these roles. I have always enjoyed reading and learning so teaching has been a career choice that I’ve never regretted. My favorite books to read are fantasy, pretty much anything with dragons or magic. In addition to reading, I also enjoy painting, walking with my family, and strength training. I love working out and generally try to be healthy but I have a very large sweet tooth.

 Joel Wiebe

Roses are red
Violets are blue
My name is Joel
And I’m a grandfather too!

Sunflowers are yellow
Daisies are white
I play some guitar and piano
But violin… not quite.

Marigolds are orange
Petunias are pink
I’m here at RAEC
To encourage you to think.

Lavenders are mauve
Cockscombs are green
I ride bike to work
And this poem… doesn’t rhyme!
