Jill strives to cultivate a supportive, caring, and welcoming environment that prioritizes student voice and provides enriched learning opportunities for students and staff.
The Board of Education was inspired by Jill's genuine hands-on approach to the challenge of a district made up of five island communities. Jill noted, "In a geographically diverse school district, I need to be present and connecting with students, teachers, support staff, parents, and community members - everyone has a role to play. I have to know people." In accepting this appointment, Jill is eager to form relationships and continue the excellent work already taking place. She looks forward to playing a pivotal role in ensuring a solid future for Gulf Islands' learners and schools.
Tisha Boulter, Board Chairperson, was impressed that "Jill referred to the Superintendent's role as the 'lead learner' in a district. I feel incredibly grateful that Jill was drawn to our ad posting and feel confident that she is the right fit to be our next Lead Learner."
The School 成人头条 64 (Gulf Islands) Board of Education extends its sincere gratitude to the staff and partner groups, who contributed to the process, sharing insights and valuable feedback during the interview process.
