For the fifth year in a row, Pembina Trails has made The Learning Partnership Canada's Outstanding Principals list.
Last year, two of our principals won the prestigious award. Once again, in 2019, two Pembina Trails’ leaders have earned the prestigious national award given to principals who demonstrate innovation and outstanding leadership.
Congratulations to Linden Meadows principal, Teresa Rogers, and École South Pointe’s Ruthanne Dyck.
“I am humbled and full of gratitude,” shared Teresa Rogers. “Leadership is not a solitary exercise. What I have learned, I know because of the people I have worked with in the past and those I work with in my current school. Every relationship, every success and every challenge has helped me understand this exciting, complex and dynamic role. It is a privilege to work in education, alongside amazing people who come to work every day to make a difference in the lives of kids.”
“I am very excited, and both humbled and honoured to receive this award,” said Ruthanne Dyck. “I am especially looking forward to the professional learning that accompanies this privilege. If I truly am ‘outstanding’, it is because of the amazing people – kids and adults – who have surrounded and inspired me throughout my life and career, and shaped me to become what I am today. Simply put, I have been blessed.”
Both Rogers and Dyck will have the opportunity to travel to Toronto and connect with other innovative educators. They will also have the chance to experience a five-day executive leadership training program at the Rotman School of Management.
On behalf of our Board of Trustees and Senior Administration Team, we would like to congratulate Teresa Rogers and Ruthanne Dyck. We are incredibly proud to have you as part of our Pembina Trails community.
