School District 46
Sunshine Coast, BC
I have been Director of Instruction for Student Support Services for School District #46 (Sunshine Coast) for the past two years and prior to that was District Principal for Student Support. My role is to oversee all of the Special Education, Counselling and Therapy Services for the District, along with anything related to Student Safety and Social Emotional Learning. Administration of the MDI fell in my previous portfolio, but I felt it was such an important part of my work that I brought it over to my new job when I changed roles. I began 4 years ago by administering it personally to every Grade 4 and 7 class in our District, but last year started training our school counsellors to help with this task.
