I am very pleased to be joining the students and staff of Pense School as Principal for the remainder of the school year. Today I took the opportunity to meet the students and staff and already have felt welcomed. I have heard very good things about the school and community and am eager to work with the parents and community to continue to make Pense an outstanding school.
My experience with Prairie Valley School Division has been primarily in the classroom as a Grade 8 Teacher at Balgonie Elementary School for the previous fourteen years. I did have the opportunity to preform acting vice principal duties there for some of that time. While this is my first administrator posting, I look forward to the teaching component as it provides a great deal of contact time with students.
I have also taken the opportunity to review the school's Learning Improvement Plans and am confident that I can support the great work that is already being done to meet those goals. I believe strongly that staff and community working together will help provide the greatest gains for our students and welcome parent involvement whenever possible.
I look forward to working with you.
