The staff, students and parents of PISES have been incredibly welcoming to all of the new staff and students, and I am thrilled and honoured to be part of this community.

Developing the literacy and numeracy skills of our students is the focus of our programs. However, one cannot attain skills in isolation. I believe that we are part of a learning community that must provide a safe and secure environment and foster character attributes, such as respect and responsibility while improving student achievement. My role is to support teachers as they create activities that enhance children's learning. This support varies, and keeps my job interesting.

Each day brings new challenges and opportunities for all of us, and together we become better for these experiences. Welcoming and supporting parents to take an active role in their child's learning is a key role of a school administrator. I welcome parent contacts and endeavour to make your child's years at PISES successful.
