On the eve of my retirement, I have had the opportunity to reflect on my career in education as a student, teacher, Curriculum Leader and Administrator. I have come to realize, appreciate and value the people I have connected with over the years and the connections that have developed into relationships that will forever be cherished. It was an absolute honour and pleasure to serve the Parkdale school community for the last 15 years.
Come to our next School Advisory Council (SAC) meeting Thursday, February 18th, 7pm in the school library.
Everyone is welcome to attend.
