Lori Jeschke vividly recalls her first day as a new teacher at Laird School in September, 1987.
She had a split-grade classroom that included 36 Kindergarten to Grade 2 students.
Thirty years later, Jeschke feels that same sense of excitement as she prepares to embark on her new role of Education Director for Prairie Spirit School Division
“Every September, if you’re a teacher, you look forward to seeing the students in your classroom on that first day,” said Jeschke in an interview on Friday, August 25. “When you’re a principal or a vice-principal, it’s the excitement of setting up the school and working with the staff and students.
“As a superintendent, you’re excited to work with the whole ‘family’ of schools. This year, I’m looking forward to a new year for the whole school division.”
Jeschke’s career includes terms as a teacher, vice-principal and principal at both Laird and Hepburn Schools; PSSD human resources officer and PSSD Superintendent; all within the Prairie Spirit School Division area. She was appointed PSSD Education Director in late May, taking over from John Kuzbik, who held the post for six years before retiring last spring.
