Welcome !

Pakenham Public School is a caring school where we know our learners and where we value student engagement in learning.  Here, just like throughout the Upper Canada School Board, we aim to ‘prepare all students for a successful life’, by emphasizing ‘Character Always’, believing that all students can learn, and by growing students who are engaged in school and with their community. 

I am honoured to have the opportunity to lead Pakenham Public School for a second year. Our school has high academic standards and a rich tradition of community involvement. I have been a leader in education for more than twenty-four years in various roles, including Elementary Teacher, Vice Principal, Summer School Principal and Elementary Principal. I have worked with students from Kindergarten to Grade 8 and coached many athletic teams, including basketball, soccer, Borden ball, cross country and track & field. I am eager to bring my skills as an educational leader to Pakenham Public School.
