Director’s recognition for innovation and leadership

The Director’s Recognition for Innovation and Leadership Award celebrates individuals in TLDSB who have combined the characteristics of innovation and leadership to improve our system and advance the strategic direction goals of improving student learning and achievement, and fostering student and staff well-being. The award is presented by the director of education, Wes Hahn, at each TLDSB Public Meeting of the Board. Hahn introduced this month’s recipient:

Superintendent of learning, Paul Goldring, has been in the education field since the 1990s, working in another board before moving to TLDSB in 1997. Goldring has been an educator, a vice-principal, principal, and most recently, a superintendent of learning. He was an administrator at seven schools across the Muskoka region, making a positive impact at each location.

In addition to his unwavering support for student achievement, Goldring has demonstrated a knack for developing strong school culture and climate, making sure the buildings that he is leading are welcoming spaces where every student and adult feel they belong. As a superintendent of learning for the past five years, Goldring’s impact has been felt system-wide through his leadership in the Technology Services Department and safe schools portfolio.
