Board’s Acting Executive Officer Lisa Collins seconded for term as president of Ontario Principals Council
Near North District School Board (NNDSB) would like to congratulate Acting Executive Officer/Student Well-Being Principal Lead Lisa Collins on being elected the President of the Ontario Principals Council for the 2021-2022 school year.
Collins has handled her responsibilities at NNDSB with poise, confidence and optimism and demonstrated her commitment to being a team player with her colleagues and NNDSB. Only with solid leadership as exemplified by Lisa can we continue to move ahead towards a positive cultural shift in NNDSB.
Collins began her career with NNDSB 1998 as an educational assistant. A lifelong learner, she went on to earn her teaching degree. She taught in both the English and French Immersion streams for 11 years before becoming a principal with the board in 2010. Lisa has always been passionate about special education and student instruction and well-being.
Acting Executive Collins began working with the Ontario Principals Council in 2016 as the Elementary Provincial Councillor for NNDSB. She was then appointed Member at Large for 2017-2018, was elected Vice-President for 2019-2020 and served as President-Elect for 2020-2021. Collins looks forward to advocating on behalf of school administrators across Ontario in her new role as the President and will be residing in Toronto while she is seconded from the NNDSB for her one-year term with the Ontario Principals Council.
We are very proud of Lisa’s accomplishments in her career and are excited to celebrate her achievements in the coming year.
