Northland School Division No.61 (NSD) is pleased to announce the appointment of Rosalind Best as Conklin Community School Principal. Rosalind, who has been teaching at Father Perin School in Janvier since 2014, is excited about a new challenge.
“It has been a dream to become a principal of a school where our students love to come to school in Northland,” said Best. “What drives me towards a career as a leader is the ability to empower others. I am committed to ensuring students are strong in identity, healthy and successful and helping NSD to be a leader for Indigenous education excellence.”
Before joining the NSD family, Rosalind taught at North and South Tree Elementary Schools and at Red Earth Creek School. Best has taken on many leadership roles while teaching at Father R.
