I am pleased to announce that effective April 14, 2020, Karyn Bruneel will be joining the Ministry of Education as the Executive Director, Provincial and Demonstration Schools Branch, Student Support and Field Services Division. Karyn was the successful candidate in a recent competition.

Karyn joins us from the Bruce-Grey Catholic District School Board with over 20 years of experience in the education sector including her former role as Principal at the Amethyst Demonstration School. In her current role as Superintendent of Education, Karyn has proven herself as a visionary, bilingual and student focused leader with strong administrative experience in delivering ongoing improvement at the school, system and provincial levels. Karyn brings extensive experience in global competencies, leading-edge instructional practice, curriculum content and evidence-based responsive teaching strategies to deliver access to learning for students.

Karyn has a deep commitment to collaboration, innovation and building partnerships.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Holly Moran for her exceptional leadership as the interim Executive Director.

Please join me in congratulating Karyn on her new role and welcoming her to the Ministry.
