NEW Principal for FACES Program
Livingstone Range School Division is happy to announce that Mrs. Eliza Grose has been selected to fulfill the role of Principal for the FACES (Facilitating Awareness Character-building Education for Students) Program beginning in September 2018.
Grose has been involved with FACES as Coordinator, Session Leader and Lead Teacher since 2010, and has had a number of teaching assignments in LRSD schools since 2004.
She is currently a half-time kindergarten teacher at Livingstone School and is a Lead Teacher in the Livingstone Ski Academy.
Grose’s position within FACES has grown from her initial job as a small group leader to a more significant leadership and administrative role, and she has, in turn, helped to grow the program from two sessions serving 70 students to 10 sessions serving 420 students and employing 50-60 staff. Grose credits her dedication, organization, work ethic and passion as contributing factors to the growth of the FACES program. She is passionate about FACES and looks forward to the challenges of her new position.
"I am honoured and thrilled to help further develop the strong relationship that FACES has with Livingstone Range School Division,” says Grose. “I am dedicated to our students, staff, families and our community to ensure that our FACES program continues to offer dynamic experiential learning opportunities in a meaningful and safe environment.”
Grose is a graduate of Matthew Halton High School and the University of Lethbridge, earning a combined Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Education degree in 2003. In addition to her formal educational credentials, she is trained in wilderness first aid and has National Lifeguard and National Coaching certifications. Since 2011, Grose has held several roles with the Pincher Creek Family Resource Society where she has been involved in grant approval, budget review and the hiring of the Executive Director. She will bring a broad spectrum of skills to her new position with FACES.
“I am passionate about FACES and I have experienced the impact it can have on they way students see themselves, their peers and the world around them,” says Grose. It is a privilege to be part of such a life- changing program."
The Division would like to congratulate Eliza on what is sure to be an exciting chapter in her career, and wish her the very best in her leadership of FACES.
