Principal's Message

C:\Users\C12320\Downloads\photo 4.JPG As I start my first year as the proud Principal of Hilson Avenue Public School, I thought I would pause to share some information about both myself and the school.

I have been an educator for just over 29 years. I spent the first 17 years of my career teaching in the Primary division. 15 of those years were spent teaching Kindergarten, so I am fully aware of how important a strong foundation in the early years of learning is. It is such a joy to watch our youngest students gain confidence and independence as they embark on their academic journey!

As I moved through my career, I have had the opportunity to work in inner city, RAISE schools, very large urban schools, small rural community schools and suburban schools. I have experienced very small K-Grade 5 schools and very large K-Grade 8 schools. Every one presents exciting opportunities for students, teachers and Administrators.

As an Administrator, my goal for every student is that they have a safe and exciting learning environment, surrounded by a staff who care about them and their futures and that they have equitable access to the resources they need to ensure their success both as learners and as future contributing members to our 21st century society.
