Erin Hurkett

Master of Education

Anyone who has seen Erin Hurkett at the front of a classroom knows her students are in good hands.

For the past nine years Erin Hurkett (MEd ’11) has shared her enthusiasm with students in the Horizon School Division. Her resumé includes stints teaching elementary and junior high school, as well as four years as vice-principal. Today, Erin is bringing that boundless energy to the role of principal at Chamberlain School in Grassy Lake, Alta.

“As a teacher, I realized that a positive learning environment in my own classroom was dependent on the entire school community,” says Erin, who came to the University of Lethbridge in 2009 to pursue a Master of Education in educational leadership. “I wanted to help move the whole school forward in a positive, learning-centred direction, and knew I needed more expertise to do so.”

Designed to provide the training and knowledge needed to successfully lead a school or school district, the Faculty of Education’s leadership program blends theory and practice to provide educators with the skills and experience they need to be successful.

“Understanding the role of research was critical in my own professional development and also helped me better support the teachers I work with,” says Erin. “With research as my foundation, I can strategically help improve student learning, and can set up structures that enable other teachers to collaborate and focus on best practices.”

She’s proud of her success, but is quick to point out that the leadership program helped make the move from teacher to school leader possible.

“The enthusiasm the instructors have for educational leadership ignited my passion to become an effective school leader,” says Erin, who is putting her degree to practice every day. “Their insightful advice was always appreciated, and helped me understand and reflect upon my own practice.”

Erin Hurkett is the current Associate Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction, Horizon School Division
