I came to Spencer having begun my teaching career in East Vancouver, where I was the teacher at an Alternate School. My family and I (having family on Vancouver Island) were well aware that there’s “no life like island life”, and moved to Victoria where I was hired as a teacher in Sooke. I have been a vice principal at Dunsmuir, Edward Milne Community School and a principal at Journey Middle School. My time at Spencer has been very positive, and I look forward to many more years here!
Our school goal is Social Responsibility. We firmly believe that if students feel safe and cared for at school they will perform well academically. Our focus on social responsibility is highlighted in many ways, including our support of the Aboriginal Enhancement Agreement and our use of restitutional practice to support good student behaviour.
Over the next few years students and parents will see Spencer come to life as we embark on a program to ‘show what we know’ with student created murals and artwork appearing throughout the school.
