Irene has the following comment regarding her new position:

“I am very excited to join the Inclusive Learning Services team and support the continued advancement of inclusive practices within WCPS. After 18 years, however, it is with a heavy heart that I leave Iron Ridge Junior Campus and the community of Blackfalds.  The staff, students, and parents I have worked with in Blackfalds have truly enriched my life.  It has been my pleasure to serve such a dynamic staff and community. “

We look forward to the positive contribution that Irene will bring to Inclusive Learning Services.

Please join us in congratulating Irene!
