BIO OF MEMBER

Marie Wahba (2015-2018)
Director of Educational Services
Lester B. Pearson School Board

Goals

Professional:

We want to implement deep learning and good teaching practices across the system while supporting teachers fully along the way.

Personal learning:

How to measure the unmeasurable. Sometimes it’s a big challenge to collect the evidence of impact that you need.

Why are you part of the Lead Data Team?

We receive a great deal of professional development. We’re always innovating in education but the thing we always forget to do is evaluate what we’re doing. We need to have data on everything we do. The LDT gives us an edge in research and allows us to support our schools to be more evidence based.

What could you spend hours talking about? 

How kids should learn literacy, teaching practices, classroom management, and everything that has to do with pedagogy.
