Principal's Message

Welcome to Queen Mary Street Public School! 

I  am very proud to be the principal of this dynamic school community. At Queen Mary you will find a community of learning, where staff, students and parents work together towards common goals and where student achievement and well-being is at the forefront of all that we do. 

I am passionate about education and have worked in a wide variety of roles at the OCDSB for more than 20 years, learning different ways to improve student outcomes through a range of experiences: as a classroom teacher; as a specialist working with students with special education needs, with students who speak English as a second language, and now as Principal. I am someone who believes strongly that school should be a place of study and learning but also a place of fun and enjoyment. 

Our school culture is supportive, nurturing and joyful and we try to bring out the best in everyone. For me, students are the heart of our operations, supported by our talented and dedicated staff, loving and caring families, and our school board that makes up our broader school community. The OCDSB is committed to building brighter futures together through innovation, caring and social responsibility and at Queen Mary, the focus on OCDSB Exit Outcomes is actively promoted.

We believe that we can make a difference in the life of each and every child that attends our school by developing a close partnership with their families. Our sense of community has never been more palpable. Together we are working together to make the best of an incredibly challenging situation and we are ensuring that our students can still have the best possible learning in unprecedented circumstances, while staying safe and healthy. 

If you are not yet part of our school community, but are considering our school and community, please call Queen Mary Street and I will be more than happy to share the daily educational experiences of our beautiful and welcoming school.

I look forward to getting to know all of you in the coming years and encourage you to get in touch at any time.
