There is no greater joy in life than having the opportunity to see students embrace a love of learning. Since arriving at TIS in 2011, this commitment by teachers, parents and staff has reminded me of what a special school we are. As Kindergarten Vice Principal, I strive to have students develop socially, emotionally, cognitively and physically through a Reggio inspired, play-based approach. We are here to guide our students through learning that will develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes that will prepare them to be globally minded citizens. TIS is a dynamic and caring community of teachers, staff and parents that I get the pleasure of working alongside to provide the best possible environment for our children to grow. I am passionate about life long learning and I have a Bachelor of Arts and Science and a Bachelor of Education from the University of Toronto, as well as a Masters of Educational Leadership and Administration from the University of New Brunswick.
