Prairie Spirit School Division is pleased to announce the appointment of Dave Carter as a Learning Superintendent, effective August 1. This appointment fills the vacancy created following the retirement of Superintendent Kim Beaulieu.
As a Learning Superintendent, Carter will be responsible for a group of schools throughout the Division and will lead a variety of learning areas, including Music Education, English as an Additional Language (EAL) and Emergency Planning, as part of the Caring, Healthy and Safe Schools strategy.
Until his appointment as a Learning Superintendent, Carter was a Coordinator of Schools and Learning with the Division, a position he held for eight years. He has over 25 years of teaching and administrative experience, including working in Prairie Spirit at Dundurn Elementary School, Hanley Composite School and Hillcrest Hutterite Colony, as well as teaching experiences in the United Kingdom.
He completed a Master of Education in Educational Administration from the University of Saskatchewan in 2011, following a Post Graduate Certificate in Education from the University of Surrey and a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) from Middlesex University.
“In my new role, I am looking forward to working alongside a talented and committed team of senior leadership, school leaders and teachers, to explore innovative and creative approaches to learning,” he said. “I am committed to creating conditions where we can help students develop into fulfilled and contributing citizens.” Carter said he is also looking forward to supporting reconciliation and cultural agility to reflect the diversity of our communities.
“As a motivated and focused learning professional, Dave will bring strategic leadership skills and a belief in building strong relationships to support adult and student learning to his role as a Learning Superintendent in our school division,” said Lori Jeschke, Director of Education.
