We are pleased to announce the appointment of a permanent Vice-Principal to replace Mr. Ron Orser who has been on personal leave for the past two years. Mr. Joe Adams, currently a Vice-Principal at St. Patrick’s Regional high school, will be joining the STMC administrative team in time for the start of the 2018-2019 school year. As many of you may know, Mr. Adams is no stranger to STMC. Prior to moving to St. Patrick’s in 2016 to begin the challenge of learning the administrative role of our craft, Joe spent thirteen years at St. Thomas More Collegiate as a teacher, teacher-leader, coach, and servant leader.
Joe is a proven 21st century pedagogical, relational leader who we know will inspire the STMC community, and who will support our vision that students make a positive contribution to the Earth and its people. He possesses a strong sense of personal integrity and professional ethics grounded in the moral purpose of education.
Joe is certainly poised and ready to join St. Thomas More Collegiate’s senior educational leadership team – a team that is hard at work implementing strategies and initiatives that are supportive of the school’s mission, vision, and values. As a faith-filled Catholic, he will continue the great work of so many before him who have been inspired by the example of the Blessed Edmund Rice. He will be commencing his role as vice-principal on August 1.
Lastly, our faculty and staff, as well as our entire school community are indebted to Ms. Julia Webber and to Mr. Aaron Mitchell - both of whom have admirably served in an acting vice-principal capacity during the two-years spanning Mr. Orser’s leave.
Please join us in welcoming the return of Joe and the Adams family to the STMC family.
Live, Jesus, in our hearts … forever.
Mr. Steve Garland
