Principal's Message

I am very excited to start this school year with all of you!!!!  I am so fortunate to work with such a wonderful group of staff and caring people.  My goal for us this year is to connect with each other, with the kids and parents we work with, take things with stride, and lean on each other for support.  WE GOT THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let your passion shine!!!!!!!!!

Let your love for teaching and learning be heard, be seen, and be felt by the students and parents you work with!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As we go forward, let’s take risks, make mistakes and try new things. My personal motto, TSN (Try Something New)!  It’s only by stepping out of our comfort zone to try new strategies that we can find out how great we can be.  I’m really looking forward to collaborating with you and reflecting on our practices and  to grow as a school and as a person.

Principal, Cold Lake Junior High

My philosophy of teaching, learning, and leadership:

I believe that my role in education is to build a culture of exemplary teaching and excellence in learning.

I believe that all children will have the best possible experience at our school, and that they love coming to school each and every day.

I believe in the power of positives:  positive relationships, positive reinforcement, positive school culture.

I believe in the profession of education, that we are privileged to be able to make a positive impact on the future generations.

I believe in the importance of the early learning years-they are crucial to a child’s development and future success.

I believe in striving to inspire excellence in others by raising the bar and maintaining high expectations.

I believe in inspiring others to share their talents and skills and empower those around me.
