Sandra 'Sandi' Paulik-Epplett was a longtime Whistler teacher. Originally from Vancouver, she took teaching practicums in East Vancouver before moving to Whistler in 1977 to teach at Myrtle Philip Elementary School. Throughout her teaching career she taught children of all ages, from kindergarten to high school. A neighbour and friend of Myrtle Philip, Epplett often had her visit the classroom to teach the students about Whistler's early years. In addition to teaching, she served as the school's librarian (in at least 1985-86), organized track and field events, held fundraisers for grad, started a leadership program, volunteered for RCMP victim support services and the Kelty Patrick Dennehy Foundation, and made personalized scrapbooks for every student in her classes. Her contributions were rewarded with a National Excellence Award for Teachers from the Heritage Education Funds in 2011. She had been nominated by the parent of a former Whistler student, and was the first Sea-to-Sky-area teacher to win this award. Epplett ended her teaching career in 2013 at the Spring Creek Community School.

She married Bill Epplett and raised two children in Whistler. Her son Thomas enrolled as an infantry officer in the Canadian Army in 2009.
