This blog is my attempt, as the Supervisory Officer responsible for School Effectiveness and Early Years, to put our Superior-Greenstone DSB Conditions for Learning into practice. Moving the Monday Morning Memo (MMM), a communication tool that has been in place for the past six years, to an electronic format. Collectively the leadership team will reap the benefits; less clogging of our Inboxes and a format that can be easily revisited (so no more lost files!). Most importantly however, this is an opportunity to have the Thought of the Week become interactive…to have my thinking responded to and hopefully challenged, by others; thus allowing me to grow in my thinking (assessment for learning at its best). This is modelling the learning that we know needs to define our education system at all levels of the organization.
Who am I? An Ontario educator who is truly passionate about leading and learning – or learning leaders. My portfolio is one that is grounded in achieving excellence for every member of our organization who sees themselves as a leader – for students, teachers, leaders, and parents. It includes the Early Years, School Effectiveness, Elementary Programs and…the list could go on and on! I know that I have an amazing role in our district – one that has me continuously learning, growing, practicing and leading improvement. This blog is my new risk…combining those passions with the need to grow as a member of the online community. Let’s see where this journey takes us (as I hope you come along!).
