Dear HMB 2 Families,


I am excited to introduce myself to you as the Principal of the new Half Moon Bay 2 School, set to open in September 2023. I am very much looking forward to getting to know the community and my new students.  I am honored to have this opportunity to continue building on the strong foundation that everyone has worked so hard to achieve at Half Moon Bay Public School, while carving out our new identity in the community.  My new team will work hard to establish a caring school environment,  and foster  academic excellence for all of our students. 

In the coming months, I will be working closely with many departments within the OCDSB to ensure that our temporary site at D.A. Moodie, 595 Moodie Drive,  is ready for our occupancy in September 2023 and that we are on track for the grand opening of the 989 Kilburnie site in January 2024.  I am looking forward to sharing the progress along the way.  Since the first week of February,  I have been  spending  Mondays at Half Moon Bay School, to meet with the children, get to know them and elicit their vision for their new school.  My hope is that this  early connection will help to ensure a smooth transition for every student.

I have had the privilege of working in a variety of teaching and educational leadership roles over the past 25 years in diverse school communities.  This opportunity is very special and  I am excited about the adventure ahead.  I look forward to being a part of the community.
