The Board of Education for Coast Mountains School District is pleased to announce the appointment of Annette McAlpine Krumins to the position of Vice Principal at Cassie Hall Elementary School effective August 1, 2021.

Annette brings a diverse background and experience to her new position having held elementary teaching positions in the Yukon and in Ontario.  Her work in schools has always portrayed an emphasis on putting students first and building positive relationships with students, parents, staff and the community.  Throughout her 15 years’ experience, she has been guided by her passion for inclusive education for all learners including those from diverse and cultural backgrounds supported by her thorough knowledge of instructional and assessment strategies.

She currently holds the position of Elementary Classroom Teacher at Del Van Gorder School in Faro, Yukon, a position she has held for the past three years.  In this capacity, she has had the unique experience integrating Indigenous culture, language and history into the daily learning experience including bringing outdoor education into the classroom and creating seasonal round calendars depicting Indigenous food resources across the four seasons.  Annette previously worked in Ontario’s Halton School District for 12 years as an Elementary Classroom Teacher.  During her tenure with both these school districts, Annette was dedicated and contributed many hours to student extra-curricular activities and coaching athletic teams.

Annette is currently enrolled in the Professional Master of Education Program at Queen’s University with a focus on Curriculum and Assessment including coursework in Indigenous Studies.  She is scheduled to complete the program next summer.  Annette holds a Bachelor of Education Degree from Brock University and a Bachelor of Kinesiology from McMaster University.

Respected as an effective team builder and communicator who puts the learning needs of children first, Annette is eager to join the leadership and instructional team at Cassie Hall Elementary School.

We look forward to welcoming Annette to the Coast Mountains School District community and we extend our best wishes for every success in her new position.
