Colleen Minnabarriet–FINALIST–2019 Premier’s Awards for Excellence in Education– District Leadership


Colleen is a rare assortment of the most
fabulous traits you need to be she is grounded in a strong moral compass she
has incredible integrity but she is both patient and persistent at the same time. We live in a time of truth and reconciliation and Colleen actually embodies that,
she supported our district to consider new perspectives to be
really mindful in how we can work with our community partnerships to really
embed indigenous perspectives and ways of knowing and ways of teaching into all
learning experiences. To me leadership means collaboration with other
professionals and educators to do the best things for kids. I just feel so fortunate to have spent my career in this district because from the time I
started a vision for the district was aligned with mine, my position is to
support the goals that the staff are working on and that my leadership is to
help them make happen what it is they are hoping to achieve for kids.
