Message from the Director


I am so pleased to be a part of the Toronto District School Board and have received such a warm welcome from trustees, staff, students, parents and the wider community. 

My focus is on student achievement and supporting all students to succeed. We are the largest and most diverse school board in Canada. Our students have access to some of the most innovative programs and courses in the country. I am proud to be a part of a board where students can access such a multitude of choices and are encouraged to find and pursue what inspires them. Most importantly, Principals provide schools with strong leadership, and our talented educators offer high quality instruction. Our schools offer a welcoming, safe and caring environment for students, parents/guardians and the community.

I look forward to working closely with trustees, staff, parents and students to address some of the Board’s key priorities. Please check back to this site often, as I will be sharing my thoughts and insights as well as information about ongoing initiatives along the way.
