The Board of Trustees has appointed Camille Williams-Taylor as the next Director of Education for the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board. Ms. Williams-Taylor will officially assume the role January 2019. 

 “We are very pleased to welcome Camille Williams-Taylor to the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board,” said Shirley Seward, Board Chair. “Camille is a recognized leader in public education in Ontario, known for her creative and innovative leadership and her capacity to lead change.  We are confident that our district will benefit from her extensive knowledge and commitment to equity, inclusion and human rights.  Camille is passionate about bringing voice to students, staff and families to foster positive relationships and support student success.”

Camille Williams-Taylor has over 29 years of experience in education including provincial, post-secondary and public education leadership roles, and has most recently been a senior executive with the Durham District School Board since 2011. 

Over her 29-year career as an educator, Ms. Williams-Taylor has honed her skills in teaching and leadership in positions within the Toronto and Durham public school districts. A senior executive since 2011, she influenced and motivated colleagues, staff, community partners and students to activate their voices, and to realize their potential. She is committed to professional learning that builds teachers’ capacity to embed global competencies, equitable practices and social justice for inclusive instructional programs. In addition, Ms. Williams-Taylor draws on wisdom gleaned from her time spent at the post-secondary level in education at York University, in the Faculty of Education, and as a Student Achievement Officer at the Ministry of Education.

“I am honoured to be joining the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board and would like to thank the Board of Trustees for this opportunity,” said Camille Williams-Taylor. “I am excited about the work this district has done and look forward to the opportunity to build relationships with staff, students, families, and community partners.   Working together, we can build a vision for public education that ensures our students have the best learning opportunities in a safe and caring environment”.
