Principal's Message

March 2019

​Dear Parents and Guardians:
I am thrilled to be joining the Ecole Woodman School community as your new principal.  I will officially assume the role on Mon. Feb. 25, 2019 and over the next two weeks will be working through a thoughtful transition plan together with my colleague, Mr. Whitbread.
I have been the school principal at Escuela Senator Patrick Burns School since 2013, which is a Gr. 6-9 middle school (Area II) with 645 students.  It has been a triple track program for much of my time there, hosting the English Regular Program, National Sport Academy and Spanish Bilingual program, and serving 60 NE/NW communities of Calgary.  Learning and leading in a dynamic environment of choice, promoting rich language learning opportunities and guiding adolescents during a sometimes-turbulent time in their lives has been one of the most satisfying periods in my career thus far.  I believe that transferrable experiences and ideas can occur between the SPB and Woodman campuses. I admire the cohesive community that Mr. Whitbread has helped create between the three programs at Woodman over the last two years.  Both he and I were featured in the CBE Dialogue series in October that highlight best practices for leading school communities housing multiple programs; to me, this is a serendipitous sign of the compatibility between leadership and school practices. 
Originally from Winnipeg, I managed to escape the cold winter weather to teach music in Mexico City; this turned into a ten-year stint of living and working in multiple educational settings of Mexico.  The decision to return to my country again, and to make my home in the Calgary Board of Education, was life-changing for my family and I. As a proud Canadian that heralds two official languages, my next professional goal includes learning to speak French.  I embrace with positive expectation the gift of learning yet another language together with the Gr. 7 students of the late French immersion program at Woodman.  Through study in the Certificate in French Language and Culture program at the University of Calgary, the next phase in my service to the CBE – and to all of you -  is indeed energizing.  
 I look forward to meeting the students, staff and parents of Woodman (and corresponding feeder schools) over the next few weeks.  Mr. Whitbread has invited me to attend the school council meeting on Feb. 19th and the Open House on Feb. 21st, where I will learn more about Woodman School's priorities and connect with you personally.
 Warmly yours (in spite of this cold stint),
 Marlene Krickhan​
