Heidi Ryder is someone who leads by example with her creativity and innovative way of thinking. Being the lead administrator in a High School with over 500 students is sure to be a challenge, but Heidi has embraced the opportunity and has won over her students and staff. Everyone in the building means something to her and she treats everyone with equal respect. Therefore, it is no surprise that Heidi has been named one of Canada’s Outstanding Principals for 2018 by the Learning Partnership organization.
The first ASD-N non-fiction read aloud challenge, which ran from mid-October to mid-November, appears to have been a huge success. 37 entries were turned in and the response from teachers and leads is that students loved reading and discussing the non-fiction stories.
