Livingstone Range School Division is pleased to announce that Sandi Harrower has been named as the Division’s Early Learning Supervisor/Learning Coach.
Sandi received her Bachelors of Arts and of Education from Brandon University and has a Masters of Education (Curriculum, Teaching and Learning) from the University of Calgary. She has been a classroom teacher, acting early learning strategist, and learning leader/resource teacher. Most recently she was the Early Learning Specialist with the Calgary Board of Education.
“We are confident that Sandi will be an excellent addition to our Learning Services team,” says Superintendent Darryl Seguin. “Her education, professional development, and relationship building skills will be beneficial in providing supports and services to our youngest students.”
Reporting to the Director of Learning (Support Services), Sandi will guide schools, the Division, and our partners in accessing and coordinating instruction and services that address the needs of all students, in an inclusive environment. In this role, Sandi will oversee all areas of Early Childhood Services, including Program Unit Funding (PUF). Sandi will work alongside teachers, parents, and students to purposefully plan meaningfully learning opportunities for student success.
Passionate about early learning, Sandi ascribes to a philosophy that each child can be successful. “I believe that the early years are the most vital in a child’s life and that it is our role as educators to help children reach their fullest development potential,” says Sandi. “By offering rich learning experiences through play, we are able to foster children’s creativity, wonder, and imagination while supporting them in recognizing their own unique gifts and talents.”
Sandi grew up in Manitoba and moved to Calgary in 2005. She loves spending time with her husband, daughter, and dog, and enjoys traveling.
“I am very excited to join such a dynamic team at LRSD,” Sandi says, “to further support the exemplary work already happening in our early learning programs and to collaborate with staff, students and stakeholders. I am excited about the opportunity of bringing my skill set and perspective to Livingstone Range School Division and to further enhance learning opportunities for our youngest learners.”
We congratulate Sandi on her new role!
