Principal Smith

Spotlight on Staff: Shannon Smith, Principal

Hello Glen Cairn PS Families,

I am currently serving my fifth year as principal at Glen Cairn Public School. I live in the community and work hard to ensure that we have the very best programs for our students, both academic and extra-curricular. 

As a teacher I taught at both the elementary and secondary school levels. I have a background in special education and my core belief is that all students require instruction that is personalized to their readiness and learning needs. I believe in inclusion and want to make sure that Glen Cairn is a warm and welcoming school for all students.

I value physical activity and make sure to incorporate physical activity into my daily routine - running, swimming, skiing or yoga. I enjoy reading both fiction and non-fiction in my spare time. I encourage all individuals in our school community to adopt a "growth mindset", which means an openness to learning new things and I try to embody that by learning new skills and trying new things. I am currently enrolled in an open online course on indigenous education, as well as a course to improve my French language skills.

I'm thrilled to start our new school year and look forward to meeting all of our new students in September.
