Principal's Message

I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself.  I am so happy to be working here in the communities of Johnstown and Cardinal.  We have a tremendous staff here at South Ed who give their very best everyday to the students we serve.  While I have gotten to know your children quickly, I hope to meet more of our community members over the coming months, whether through school council, school events or casual conversations at drop-off and pick-up.

In case you have been wondering, here is a little bit about me.  I have had the opportunity to teach in numerous schools in the Upper Canada District School Board over the last 15 years in the communities of Perth, Carleton Place, Smiths Falls and Russell.  When teaching, I was a business and math teacher with some other subjects sprinkled in.  I then became a secondary vice-principal for 3 ½ years, first at Carleton Place High School and then at Perth & District Collegiate.  I have been the principal here at South Ed for the past year and a half.  I grew up in the Smiths Falls area and currently live south of Kemptville with my wife and 3 children.

This year is going to be a great year of fun and learning at South Edwardsburg.  If you have any questions, concerns, or would just like to meet me, please don’t hesitate to stop by or give me a call at the school.
