This time of year presents an opportunity for each of us to reconnect with loved ones and carve out some valuable time for reflection.  We think of our professional and personal goals and accomplishments from the past year, and those areas for growth we aspire to pursue over the next 12 months.

As Director of Education, I am exceptionally proud of the hard work and success stories that occurred in Bluewater District School Board during 2022.  If you have not done so already, I invite you to review the Director’s Annual Report 2022, which captures a few fine examples of the achievements of our students and staff in actioning our multi-year strategic plan priorities.

Looking forward, I am eager to work with our 2022 – 2026 Board of Trustees, staff, families, and partners to further our important work around student academic outcomes, diversity, equity, inclusion, engagement, well-being, and stewardship of our resources.

On behalf of the senior leadership team, thank you to everyone who contributed to positive, healthy, and safe environments in our schools and sites this year.  From students, staff, trustees, and union partners, to parents/guardians, families, volunteers, and community stakeholders, the vitality of our local education system depends on the combined efforts of many committed individuals and groups.  We humbly appreciate the diverse expertise and talent that all of you continue to bring to the table to enrich and foster the learning and growth of our students.  Thank you for your collaboration and a job well done.

Happy holidays, and all my best to you and yours for good health, success, and fulfillment in 2023!
