Dorian Boswell – teacher
Natasha Miles – principal
Ms Miles is an experienced back country recreationalist. She has backpacked across England, the length of the French Alps and the Rila Mountains in Bulgaria. She has toured on her bike across the Picos de Europa, ski toured in Norway and is slowly exploring West Kootenay backcountry skiing locations. Ms Miles also is a trail runner and dons cross country skis in the winter on the trails. She believes that Burton Academy School has huge potential as the location for an outdoor program that allows students to appreciate both the beauty and the dangers of the backcountry and to instill in them the knowledge that to be prepared for any eventuality enhances the outdoor experience. She recognises that giving students the opportunity to acquire specific employment skills while at secondary school will give them more options as graduates in the job market but also allows them to explore their interests at school.
