Sent on behalf of Karyn Bruneel, Executive Director, Provincial and Demonstration Schools Branch

Hello everyone,

I am pleased to announce that Tina MacCauley-Gray will be leading the Provincial and Demonstration Schools Branch inaugural Summer Learning Program this coming summer. Tina is currently the Principal at Sagonaska Demonstration School in Belleville. She has over twenty years of experience in education including working in a variety of schools, both urban and rural, for three different schools boards in Ontario.  Tina’s teaching background is primarily in special education which includes three years of experience as a teacher at Sagonaska Demonstration school. She has also held various principal and vice principal positions within the Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board (ALCDSB).  Tina has a Masters of Education degree which she completed in a cohort program facilitated by Loyalist College and taught through Central Michigan University. She has experience in program planning and curriculum support in accommodating students with diverse learning needs and in developing self-advocacy skills as they relate to those learning needs.

Please join me in welcoming Tina to the this new role.
