Stuart Angle has come along way since his days of teaching at Seven Persons School 28 years ago.
Twenty of those years has been spent in administration, but he definitely cut his teaching teeth at rural schools. From Seven Persons, he went on to teach at Schuler, and Manyberries, a school that closed its doors several years ago.
“At that time, Manyberries had more than 100 students,” he said, adding that Schuler has maintained a stable enrollment for all the years he has been with Prairie Rose School Division.
“It is tremendously important to keep the doors open to these schools,” said Angle.
As a trustee for PRSD, Angle has always been a strong advocate for embracing new technology.
“We are looking at more advanced technology innovations. With our vast distances and changes in technology, this is something we have to stay on top of,” he said.
Angle has also made a point of getting to know educational representatives in the provincial government.
“We roll with what the government dictates and all of our policies have passed muster with the them and with the community,” said Angle. “We take a careful, sensible, pragmatic approach and always try to do what is best for the students.”
