While this marks my first year as superintendent, many of you might remember me from my time as a principal of both Prairie River Junior High School and Georges P. Vanier School or remember my work as Assistant Superintendent of Finance and my contributions within our central office. Those experiences have left an indelible mark on my heart, fostering a deep appreciation for the unique strengths and boundless potential that reside within each student and staff member within the division.

Je tiens à sonlingner mon véritable enthousiasme pour le travail qui nous attend. Notre vision collective reste ferme: offrir un environnement exceptionnel qui nourrit la créativité, favorise le bien-être de nos çtudiants et inculque une passion pour l’apprentissage. Notre division scolaire a toujours été un endroit où les élèves s’épanouissent et c’est mon but de bâtir sur cette fondation.

I am acutely aware that none of this would be possible without the incredible dedication and hard work of our talented educators, staff, parents, and, of course, our brilliant students. Each one of you is an integral piece of the puzzle that forms our educational community. Together, we will overcome challenges, celebrate successes, and create memories that will forever shape the lives of those students that we serve.

The pursuit of excellence is our common goal. Whether we are refining our curriculum, fostering innovative teaching methods, or ensuring a safe and inclusive environment, know that my door is always open to your ideas, feedback, and insights. Your voices matter, and I am here to listen and learn from each of you.

As we move forward into this academic year, I am eager to witness the positive impact we will make as a united force. Let’s celebrate our diversity, encourage each other’s growth, and hold fast to the belief that by working together, we can achieve remarkable results that transcend expectations and propel students forward to squarely force the challenges of an unknown future.

With immense pride and great anticipation, I extend my warmest welcome to the 2023-24 school year. May it be a year filled with growth, discovery, and the joy of shared accomplishments.

Here’s to a fantastic year ahead!
