TDSB Celebrates Staff Excellence

Tuesday, May 16, 2017
Categories: Great Things, Happenings @ TDSB

Outstanding staff were honoured at the 2017 Excellence Awards Recognition Event on May 15, recognizing those who go above and beyond in support of student achievement.

Each year, staff, students, parents and community members are invited to nominate a TDSB staff member or team whose efforts – guided by the Vision for Learning, Integrated Equity Framework and Service Excellence – have made a difference in their lives.

This year, we recognized 14 individuals who’ve done just that. Read more about who they are and see pics of the event!

We are proud that our staff are among the most dedicated and qualified in Canada. Every day, nearly 39,000 committed professionals support our students and help them achieve their very best. Their focus, enthusiasm and dedication help build strong and healthy relationships and allow our school communities – and students – to thrive.

It’s important that we recognize the great work of our outstanding staff across the system. Recognizing our staff not only celebrates their accomplishments and efforts, it inspires others to excel in their own roles.

Congratulations to all the winners!
