Principal's Message

Mindset Shift

School is back in session and with it also returns the vision and energy levels required for our work in public education. 
Many of the structural elements of school have not changed for more a century – such as dividing students into grades by age, or the relative ratio of one teacher to a large class of students.  Yet, Canadian society itself has been fundamentally altered over this same period of time - as a result of globalization, technology, and changing family and community sources of influence.  These changes therefore also fundamentally shift the composite of learners in the classroom, their needs, and the experiences which they bring to school with them. The scope of skills and competencies needed of today’s teacher, to respond to the individual complexities of each student within the classroom, is enormous.
Sir Mark Walport, recipient of the of the Henry G. Friesen International Prize in Health Research, is known for his innovative work and distinguished leadership. In his recent lecture on Medical Research and Innovation: Post Pandemic Priorities, he speaks to the cultural changes in open and collaborative science over the last few decades. This level of pre-existing collaboration became a key aspect of preparedness needed to respond to the global pandemic.  Sir Walport states that:
“Collaboration matters because many problems are best tackled by teams of people with diversity of thinking and complementing skill sets.  Many problems can only be tackled at a scale that requires teams of people to deliver.”
This insight could not be more appropriately applied to the learning sciences. 
In education, our way of thinking is changing. The time of teaching in isolation within a classroom is over.  The time for collaboration to resolve complex educational problems is upon us.  This is what energizes the staff at Woodman.  We are embracing this collaborative response - at a unique historical juncture – following more than two very difficult years behind us in which students have suffered to varying degrees. The very future of public education, striving towards the common good, hinges upon this shift in the way we think.
Considering this, I know we can anticipate a powerful year of learning for all.
Sincerely, Ms. Krickhan
