St. John School’s principal was recently named Principal of the Year. 

The Catholic Principals’ Council of Ontario held their Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony on April 22, where Corinna Glazier, principal of St. John Catholic School in Red Lake, received the Principal of the Year Award.  

“I am truly honoured to receive this award from CPCO and am humbled by the nomination from my colleagues at Kenora Catholic District School Board,” said Corinna Glazier.  

“I am grateful for the ongoing support and guidance I receive from my fellow principals, vice-principals, and the KCDSB. I wish to thank the staff, students, and parents who strive to bring leadership and the teachings of Jesus to our everyday practice.”  

She continued, “We have an amazing school community, and I am so grateful for your support as I continue to grow in my role as principal. It is a privilege to work and serve alongside you.” 

Glazier started as an education assistant at the school her children attended. She began her teaching career in 2004 and has since worked in multiple roles such as classroom teacher, learning resource teacher and innovative technology teacher.  

Glazier is now in her sixth year as Principal of St. John Catholic School.  

Not only is Glazier a prominent member of the school, but she also serves her community as a parish lector, Eucharistic minister, hospitality support and on the Parish Council.  

“Corinna is an exceptional Catholic leader and role model at St. John School and within the Kenora Catholic District School Board, and the recognition from her colleagues and the Catholic Principal Council of Ontario is well deserved,” says Paul White, Director of Education for the Kenora Catholic District School Board.  

“Corinna works incredibly hard for her students, staff and families to create a warm and welcoming school community where everyone belongs, and students receive the support they need to be successful,” he concluded.
