Crystal’s career includes 5 years as a K-6 classroom teacher, 3 years as an Aboriginal Education Support Teacher, and 1 year as Program Support Services at the Prince Charles Education Resource Centre; all with the Winnipeg School Division.
For the 2019/2020 school year, Crystal had the opportunity to support St. Laurent School as Vice Principal and Indigenous Academic Achievement Coordinator. She shared her leadership in an open and honest environment and encouraged the respectful exchange of ideas with many stakeholders.
In recognition of Crystal’s strong commitment and work in Indigenous Education, Crystal received the Aboriginal Circle of Educators (ACE) Award – Culture in Education Award in 2017.
