Wahlstrom school vice-principal Brian Carleton will retire after 36 years with HPSD.
He started as a physical education teacher at HPSD and later became vice-principal of Roland Michener Secondary School and then vice-principal of E.G. Wahlstrom School.
His classes are described as engaging, motivating, and enthusiastic; he is someone who is always well prepared with clear expectations, well-established routines, and the knowledge to provide students with quality fitness instruction.
Carleton’s extra contributions through coaching, organizing international trips, teaching First Aid and CPR to fellow HPSD employees, and participating in Alberta Education curriculum projects are just a few of the ways he enriched the school atmosphere and enhanced the educational experience for the countless students he has taught in his career.
HPSD trustees and staff thank Carleton for his dedication to the division and its staff and students.
