Principal's Message


Welcome to the 2017-18 school year. I hope that your summer was all that you wanted it to be. I am honored and humbled to be granted the privilege of being appointed the principal of McKernan School. The long standing tradition of excellence is well documented. I believe that the health of a school is determined by its culture, and that culture is based upon a solid foundation of respectful interdependent relationships between the home, the school and the community.

I am looking forward to developing strong, trusting, mutually respectful relationships with McKernan’s students and parents over the course of the 2017-18 school year.  Collectively, as the staff members of McKernan School, we appreciate that you entrust us with the educational, social, emotional and physical development of your children. The staff and I are committed to providing a safe, caring and engaging environment that is conducive to learning at the highest levels. Personally, I see a collaborative culture that allows us to develop students as well-rounded, responsible, respectful citizens. This is how I strive to raise my own children.

I am a graduate of the University of Alberta, and have enjoyed a successful career with Edmonton Public Schools. My career as a classroom teacher (Math, PE, Science, EOE, Health, CALM, Leadership) includes: Hardisty (7-9), Avalon (7-9) and Strathcona (10-12). My journey in administration/leadership includes: Avalon (7-9), Parkview (K-9), Johnny Bright (K-9), McKee (K-6), and now McKernan (K-9).

I am, and always will be, a teacher first. I make all of my decisions in the best interests of kids. I hope that you share my enthusiasm, as we move forward together in the 2017-18 school year.
