The OCDSB is pleased to announce the appointment of Nancy Brady as a new Superintendent of Instruction.


A highly experienced educator, she was inspired to become a teacher as a result of her experience working as an education assistant. Nancy has taught internationally and joined the OCDSB as a secondary teacher in 1999. Since 2004, Nancy has been a principal in both elementary and secondary OCDSB schools. Throughout her career, Nancy has been committed to working with students and families to support student learning and well-being.  


As a principal, Nancy has worked in a number of schools and has navigated many challenging issues. She has demonstrated a strong commitment to understanding the needs of the school community and working collaboratively to identify and overcome systemic barriers to education. From July 2019 to July 2020, she served as president of the Ontario Principals Council.  


A committed lifelong learner, Nancy has earned two Bachelor of Arts degrees, one in Psychology and one in English Literature. In addition to these and her Bachelor of Education, Nancy has earned a Master's in Education. 


"My parents stressed the importance of education early in my life. Once I began teaching, I was inspired by my teacher colleagues and how much their creativity and dedication helped to push my horizons.I quickly came to understand the tremendous difference a teacher can make in the lives of their students. That is what fuels my passion for public education,” she said.


At the OCDSB, Superintendents of Instruction are directly responsible for the supervision of schools (elementary and secondary), as well as for all the support services and resources that are directed to those schools. In this role, Superintendents of Instruction must be knowledgeable of their communities and be responsive to them. They are required to develop and maintain good communications among students, parents, principals, trustees and board staff.


“Nancy's experience and skills are well aligned with the District's strategic priorities and she will provide leadership to the Kanata Superintendency, Continuing Education and the Secondary Alternate Program,” said Camille Williams-Taylor, OCDSB Director of Education. “Her commitment to working with the community and approaching her new responsibilities through an equity lens will be instrumental in our efforts to build a culture of innovation, caring and social responsibility across the OCDSB.”
