Hagemann new assistant principal at Outreach School

Shelagh Hagemann has been appointed as the new assistant principal of Ponoka Outreach School, effective at the beginning of the 2011-2012 school year.

This is a new position, created to assist with the evolving student needs at the school.

Hagemann is currently serving as the acting principal at Ponoka Outreach School. She is also the school’s Student Success Coach, AISI (Alberta Initiative for School Improvement) leader and teaches high school English.

“I am grateful to the wonderful staff and students at Ponoka Outreach for their support and I am excited about this new opportunity,” she said. “My family shares in my excitement and we look forward to this new chapter in my career.”

Hagemann was a recipient of the Edwin Parr Award for first year teachers in 1992 when she started her career with Northern Gateway Regional Division in Whitecourt. In 1999, she was also nominated for an Alberta Education Excellence in Teaching Award for innovative and outstanding teaching. In 2003, she moved to Ponoka and spent a year teaching grades 5 to 9 at the Wolf Creek Public Schools educational program at the Twin Oaks group home, before joining the Ponoka Outreach staff in 2004.

She has a bachelor of education degree in English and drama from the University of Alberta and is currently working on a master of science in Education.

“Mrs. Hagemann has been a strong instructional leader in Ponoka Outreach School. She has worked tirelessly to support her school with AISI in addition to working closely with Ponoka Composite High School in implementing a “Success Coach” model to support students transitioning between the traditional high school and the outreach school,” said Jayson Lovell, assistant superintendent of schools. “This new assistant principal role formally recognizes Mrs. Hagemann’s dedication to the staff and students of Ponoka Outreach School.”

Outside of school, Hagemann enjoys reading, golfing, skiing, snowmobiling, quadding, gardening and being outdoors spending time with her family. She and her husband, Rob, were raised west of Ponoka and graduated from Ponoka Composite High School. They have two children who attend school in Wolf Creek Public Schools.

Ponoka Outreach School has 233 students in grades 8 to 12.
