1/23/19—St. Margaret’s School (SMS) has announced the appointment of Sharon Klein as the next Head of School, effective August 2019.
Klein is a member of the Board of Directors for CAIS (Canadian Accredited Independent Schools). She has served on the CAIS Strategic Planning, Standards, and Evaluation committees, and is a certified Fierce Conversations Facilitator, and holds National Coaching Certifications in four sports.
For the last four years, Klein has been the highly successful Head of School at St. George’s School (STG) in Montreal, Quebec, a leading progressive, co-educational school. She led the school through a strategic planning process, enhanced STG’s reputation with the creation of a new branding and marketing campaign, and developed a campus master plan initiating a $10 million capital campaign.
The SMS Search Committee was most impressed by Klein’s leadership skills and her commitment to all-girls education. “What I have learned over my tenure as an educator is that the culture of the school is of the utmost importance,” said Klein. “All students learn best in an environment where they feel respected, encouraged, and supported—one where they cite their relationship with their teachers as what they love best about their school… I care deeply about creating confident and inspiring women who will lead in whatever way they choose.”
