New Associate Superintendent of Learning Services
MESC Communications ·
Please join us in congratulating Sharon Currie as the new Associate Superintendent of Learning Services. She is replacing Tracy Swampy-Sylvester, who will be transitioning to the Superintendent position in August 2022. Sharon’s years of experience in school administration, her passion for indigenizing the curriculum and ability to connect with and support students makes her an excellent fit for this role.
Sharon has worked in Maskwacis for 23 years; 9 years as a teacher between Meskanahk Ka Nipa Wit, Nipisihkopahk Secondary and Ermineskin Junior Senior High School, 4 years as a Vice Principal at Ermineskin Junior Senior High and 10 years as Principal at the Maskwacis Outreach.
A quote that has informed Sharon’s teaching and leadership practice is from Dr. Marie Battiste, “To affect the needed reform, educators need to make a conscious decision to nurture Indigenous knowledge, its dignity, identity, and integrity by making a direct change in school philosophy, policy, pedagogy, and practice.”
“I am excited about this new challenge and thrilled to be working with the many creative minds transforming MESC.”
