Hello Springvalley community,
I feel very fortunate to be the new Vice Principal at Springvalley Elementary School. Last year, I enjoyed my experience at Ecole Belgo Elementary and it is with great pleasure that I now have the opportunity to be part of this amazing learning community and officially become a Skyhawk!
I have been with the Central Okanagan Public Schools since 1994. During that time, I have spent equal portions of my career in elementary, middle and secondary schools. I primarily specialized in the area of student supports as a learning assistance teacher, behavior teacher, and school counsellor.
My goal has always been to understand and help families and students in any way they may need, valuing relationships above all else. Brain science has shown us that positive relationships are fundamental to success. When students feel supported, they are more likely to engage in learning, take new learning risks, and have better academic outcomes.
Together we will work towards making our school a great place to learn and be involved. We will help prepare our students to thrive as individuals who will make a positive difference in our ever-changing world.
I look forward to eventually getting to know each one of you in the future! However, it is a little more challenging to reach us and connect these days. Please feel free to call the school or you can reach me directly through my school email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I welcome the opportunity to meet you outside for in a person visit at any time to connect.
