Eric Woodward

Secretary

My job as a teacher has always been to create the conditions (both relational and environmental) where kids feel safe and supported to take risks in their learning. My Masters of Teaching thesis in progressive education helped me identify best practices across our system and that, along with my experience in outdoor education, counseling and of course teaching, will help me to lead our exciting and much needed project. It takes a village indeed, and I believe that this wonderful team of teachers and educational entrepreneurs can create a school unlike any other in both its innovative curriculum and in the strength of its community. I commit to work with humility and integrity, collaborating with educational leaders and drawing from the latest research while always putting our young people at the centre of the work.
