About Me

2018-19 marks the third year of Christina Gordon Public School.  I feel privileged to be part of this amazing school, with its phenomenal staff, fabulous students and supportive parent community. I am so looking forward to working with each and every one of you as we strive to make Christina Gordon the best it can be.  My goal is that Christina Gordon becomes the school that all parents want to send their children and where every child will love being.

As I enter my 40th year in education, I feel so fortunate to have had many diverse opportunities in virtually every aspect of education, having taught from Kindergarten – grade 12, served as a guidance counsellor, worked out of district offices as a program coordinator and most recently as a district principal and have been a school principal for more than 20 years.  I have worked in Newfoundland and Labrador and Alberta and have had the opportunity of working in schools with as few as 20 children and  others with nearly 1000 children.  Through all of these the one thing that has been constant is that I have always known that I have chosen the perfect career for me, one that allows me to wake up each morning looking forward to going to ‘work’.  The reason for this has always been the students, teachers and parents that I have the pleasure of working with.

Though we have already accomplished so much in our first two years, as we have worked with our students, staff and families to build the Christina Gordon School community, we remain committed to making our school even better, and more responsive to needs of you, our families.  

The road ahead will be a challenging one, but the challenges will make the journey all the more rewarding.  If Christina Gordon is to be that exceptional school that we all envision, it will take everyone in our Christina Gordon Family (students, parents and staff) committing to making it just that.
