Director of Education - Colleen Russell-Rawlins


I am proud to be the Director of Education at the Toronto District School Board. I am motivated by the brilliance in each and every student and I am optimistic about our shared future together as a TDSB community. 

As an organization, we are committed to supporting every student especially for those students who are currently underserved (e.g., Indigenous, Black, Latinx, and other students). This requires us to hold ourselves accountable for enacting Truth and Reconciliation and addressing systemic racism and oppression each and every day.

Our work is guided by our Multi-Year Strategic Plan, which is currently being reviewed and revised to meet our  students’ evolving needs. We have learned a lot over the past few years about our priorities and how we can best support our students, staff and community. We have grown and thrived in challenging times and we will take those lessons forward to develop learning environments where students have the ability to address local and global challenges and to personally flourish in an increasingly complex world.

Visit our website often and follow me on social media to see some of the amazing things that are happening every day in the TDSB.
