Springfield Elementary School in Peace River will have a new face in the principal’s chair next fall.
Peace River School Division appointed Audrey Senft, says a May 20 news release. Her appointment is effective for the 2021-22 school year.
Senft received her Bachelor of Education in Elementary Education from the University of Alberta with a focus in Educational Psychology. In 2018, she received her professional certificate in Special Education from the University of Victoria with a specific focus on programming for special education.
Furthermore, in 2020, Audrey received a diploma in Special and Inclusive Education from the University of Victoria with a focus on advanced programming for special education.
Senft has over 22 years of educational experience in PRSD. She started her career at Manning Elementary School teaching Grade 6 and in 1999, she took a teaching position with Dixonville School as a general education teacher and key contact for kindergarten to Grade 9. She then took on a leadership role when she transferred to T.A. Norris Middle School in Peace River as the school’s I-Coach and Literacy PLC Coordinator.
Later, she stepped into the divisional role as the inclusive education intervention coordinator and most recently, has been the principal of Dixonville School.
From her background, it’s obvious Senft will bring an abundance of educational and practical experience to her new leadership role at Springfield.
