After 21 years of teaching in this district, Dave Hill has been formally named as the next vice principal at Cranbrook’s Mount Baker Secondary School.
Currently the acting vice-principal at the high school, Hill will start next school year in the permanent position.
Hill grew up in South Delta and moved to the East Kootenay in 1992. He has been teaching in School District 5 ever since.
“I’ve enjoyed interacting with the large cross section of students and collaborating with the excellent staff,” said Hill, adding that he looks forward to being involved in the planning of a replacement Mount Baker/Neighbourhood Learning Centre in the near future.
Hill says he’s thrilled to be part of a school that provides so much opportunity to its students. “I look forward to continuing to support students both academically and as they develop new passions and interests like theatre, trades training and outdoor education.”
“Dave brings energy and enthusiasm to his position as vice-principal,” said board chair Frank Lento. “Whether teaching math, science or the fine arts, Dave has always inspired passion in his students. He’s a great addition to our leadership team at Mount Baker.”
