Sainte Marguerite Bourgeoys. After much planning – a great day with students and parents.

Thanks to the parent council for all the work put forth, so my day with your community was a successful one.

The feedback from parents was a pleasure to read!

Fisherville Senior Public School, TDSB

October 8, 2014

I return today to Fisherville.  Great to have the front row of Grade 8 students remind me of what they learned last year.

“You are the most memorable speaker we had last year” – Grade 8 Girl.  The Principal smiled..

Thanks to the parents for attending this evening.  Great day with your community.

St. Jean du Brebuef, Bradford

October 7, 2014

Honoured to return to St. Jean du Brebuef in Bradford today.  As the Grade 4/5/6s arrived, I could hear some of the Grade 6 girls look and point in my direction making reference to seeing me two years ago.  What a great feeling.  Thank You to  Parent Council and the Principal for having me return, and to be asked back in two years!

Thank You Constable Robert (South Simcoe Police), for your support this evening.



Balaclava, HWDSB

October 6, 2014

A parent showed up tonight saying “my child insisted I attend”.

Another parent said “we could not get her to stop talking at dinner about your presentation”

That is what makes my day.  A child going home engaging their parents on my time with them.

Thank You to parent council for allowing me to speak with your community


Louis Riel, CBE

I returned to Louis Riel in the S.W. today.  My second visit in two years.

Thanks to the Principal who believes in the importance of my message to his students and parents.

Thank You to the parents who braved the zero temps tonight.  And a special Thank You to the mother who has seen me three times, during my trips to the Calgary area.  See you in January.


Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School, Okotoks

A great day at Strathcona-Tweedsmuir!

Great student interaction with both groups.  100+ Parents out this evening for a full 2hr session.

Feedback was tremendous.   A fun day!

Colonel Macleod, CBE

September 20, 2014

Where has the month gone? My last day in September had me speaking at Colonel Macleod school.

My eye opening example at the end of the Grade 7/8/9 session,  brought a group of Grade 9 students to surround me asking “how did you do that”.  Loved their interest!   A solid group of parents this evening – with great marketing by the school to get a large audience.
