This session will focus on the challenge of creating collaborative time and the framework for high school teachers to identify and discuss at-risk students. Inclusive Education practices are becoming an integral piece of the educational environment and high schools are a perfect place to speak about student needs.
From this session, participants are intended to have the following takeaways:
Ken Pon has been a dedicated educator for the 16 years and is currently Principal at W.R. Myers High School. After 15 years working within the Peace Wapiti School Division as a teacher, AISI Coordinator, Assistant Principal and Principal, Ken has moved south to Horizon School Division in Taber, Alberta. Ken is passionate about creating the best possible learning environment for students, parents and the communities that he serves. He believes that as a principal, one should lead through a student-centered focus and a school vision should focus on the betterment of the students. Every activity that occurs in the building should revolve around what is best for the students.
Ken’s belief in education is exemplified by his desire to learn. He has completed a Bachelors of Arts in History (University of Lethbridge), Bachelor of Education (University of Alberta) and a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership (Acadia University). He has also been recognized for his excellence in teaching as the district recipient of the Alberta Edwin Parr Award for first year teaching.
