As a school that is deeply rooted in Christian values, student achievement and success, I am very much looking forward to building deep connections with staff and students where everyone feels valued and authentically cared for and to be a contributor in all aspects of the community.”
Loveridge brings many years of experience as an elementary teacher and finds professional fulfillment in working alongside teaching teams where she offers professional learning at the school and Division level as well as a teacher mentor.
Loveridge completed her Bachelor of Arts from Concordia University in Edmonton and earned her after degree from the University of Alberta in Education. Later, Loveridge went on to complete her Master of Education in Leadership and Administration from Gonzaga University.
