With my goal of advancing the culture of excellence here at Kateri, I am devoted to continually exploring new ideas to meet the needs of all students and to interact with parents and community members more efficiently.

Hi, my names is Jackie Sander. I am the returning Principal at Atikameg School. I am a proud Metis women born, raised and educated in the North. I am also proud to say that I have always taught in the North.
I believe in Education for all students and putting their needs first. I have high expectations for staff, students and the community to help meet the needs of our students.

My name is Connie Molcak and I am the Principal of the Peerless Lake School.
I began my teaching career in Southern Alberta at the age of 21 where I was teaching students two years younger than myself. It was a great experience for me.
My husband and I came up to the north and have been involved in the communities of Loon, Trout and Peerless for nineteen years. In 2018, we were welcomed into the KTCEA team and have enjoyed working with the education authority. I encourage students to attend KTCEA camps and sports activities for the cultural experience that these activities bring.
