Beaverlodge Regional High School is nestled smack dab in the Peace Country of Northern Alberta just outside the city of Grande Prairie. I am passionate about creating the best possible learning environment for students, parents and the communities that I serve. As a principal one should lead through a student-centered focus and his/her school vision should center on the betterment of the students. Every activity that occurs in your building should revolve around what is best for the students. I hope to add to the JigSawLearning team and connect with other leaders.
