Robyn Luff is a grade 8 math and science teacher in the Calgary public school system and a mother of two young children. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Victoria and is a graduate of the University of Calgary Master of Teaching degree. She has made Calgary East her home for the last 5 years. Robyn believes quality education is the foundation of just and healthy communities. As a mother to young children, she is concerned about quality hildcare and public school availability in her community.
Robyn has volunteered extensively in Calgary for environmental, arts, and community organizations. She has advocated for water issues through work with the Alberta Wilderness Association and Trout Unlimited Canada, and has worked to sustain a strong music community through volunteer work with the Sled Island music festival. She is also active in the Alberta Teachers' Association as a school representative and political action committee member. Last year she served on the organizing committee for Stanley Jones School's 100th anniversary celebration.
With her husband, Graham Mackenzie, and their two children, Atticus and Vesper, Robyn lives in the Southview neighbourhood of Calgary. Her roots run deep in the NDP in Alberta: her grandfather Alan Bush ran against Grant Notley for party leadership in the 1960's.
In 2012, Robyn was able to triple the NDP vote in Calgary East, and is looking forward to following up on that success.
