The Learning Partnership has just announced the names of 40 exceptional educators from across the country as Canada’s Outstanding Principals for 2018. We want to extend congratulations to Alberton Elementary School Principal, Shanna Perry, for her inclusion to this group. We are so pleased that Shanna has been recognized for the wonderful and important contributions she makes to her school community, and the Public Schools Branch. She exemplifies all the qualities required to be one of Canada’s Outstanding Principals. Principal Perry is very dedicated, hardworking, and extremely well respected by students, staff, and parents. She is committed to trying to find innovative ways to meet the needs of her students, and she works collaboratively with her staff and community so students can achieve success.
The 40 principals, nominated by parents, colleagues, and community members, and chosen by a national selection committee, are being celebrated for demonstrating innovation, leadership and for employing creativity in finding solutions and opportunities within their school communities. They will be awarded for their accomplishments at the annual Canada’s Outstanding Principals gala on February 27 in Toronto. The winners also benefit from an exclusive five-day executive leadership training program at one of Canada’s top business schools, the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management.
Shanna is most deserving of this honour as she is recognized in her school community as a great leader. She treats those she works with as equals. She trusts and respects her staff in every situation, and encourages them to take every opportunity to grow professionally. Shanna’s dedication to build and lead her team of great teachers and staff plays a vital role in positively impacting student achievement and educational success. The Public Schools Branch is very pleased that Shanna has been recognized, along with other dynamic leaders across Canada.
The Public School Branch thanks Shanna for her excellent work and for what she does for others. We are fortunate to have Principal Perry as a COP recipient, as she represents so well what we all try to do. Congratulations, Shanna!
