Principal's Update

Dear Terry Fox Families:

It is with pleasure that I introduce myself as the incoming principal of Terry Fox Elementary School. It is truly an honour to become a part of the Terry Fox community. To-date I have only had limited interaction with students, staff, and parents and have been left with an impression of a warm and caring place that I am excited to become part of.

I arrive with 25 years of experience as a teacher and school administrator. Most recently I served the community of Sherbrooke Academy Junior as principal. Sherbrooke Academy Junior is a French Immersion Program – Français Plus Model, elementary school, which opened its doors in September 2016 and has quickly become a lead school in Deep Learning, in line with the Lester B. Pearson School Board direction.

In the next few months, I will be working with staff to ensure the continuity of school programs, projects, and school life in general. Most importantly, I look forward to getting to know the students and their families, familiarizing myself with the building and grounds, our community, and the unique needs of our school. I believe whole heartedly that every student deserves an education that helps them achieve the best that they can be. This happens when the school and families work together collaboratively in the best interest of the children.

I am truly honoured to be given this opportunity and look forward to immersing myself in the school and community. I believe my main responsibility is to put our teachers in the best position to succeed, as they will in turn put our children in the best possible position to succeed.

In closing, know that my door is always open to you. I heartily welcome your conversation and positive input throughout the year. I look forward to celebrating our collective successes over the next six months and ending the 2018-2019 school year strong and proud!
