Principal's Welcome

Principal's Message

2018/2019 School Year


This is my second year as Principal of Kainai High School. I began my teaching career at KHS in 1996. I taught high school English and Drama for 14 years before moving on to work on my doctorate in 2010. I also served as Principal for Tatsikiisaapo'p Middle School (The #1 Middle School in North America!) from 2013 to 2017.

Upon my return to Kainai High School, in 2017, I felt like I was walking into a whole new high school. High School Redesign had changed the face of high schools across this province. Kainai High School had changed over to a Quarter System and I was impressed with how KHS adapted into a trauma informed school.

The staff had changed as well, with only a few remaining from my former days at KHS. Nevertheless, I am privileged to be working with a great group of educators who put the needs of students first.

The nice thing about moving from Tatsikiisaapo'p Middle School (The #1 Middle School in North America!) to KHS was that I was able to move with my students from TMS! I was principal at TMS from 2013 to 2017 and most of the students at KHS were my former TMS students! It was nice to see the transition and transformation in students as they navigated their way through their high school careers.

I am extremely proud of our KHS athletes and graduates! You students put KHS on the map! I encourage our KHS alumni to continue to advocate and support us here at KHS. I also encourage parents to take an active interest and participate in their child’s education. I encourage teachers, parents and students to work together for student success.
