Posted on:

Northern Gateway welcomes Leslee Jodry back to NGPS in the position of Assistant Superintendent, beginning with the 2016-2017 school year. Mrs. Jodry is no stranger to Northern Gateway, having begun her teaching career with the division in 1986. She would be nominated the following year for an Edwin Parr Award.

Leslee taught in Northern Gateway schools from 1986 to 2005, at which time she moved into the position of Learning Services Coordinator with Central Services. As a coordinator, Leslee planned and implemented a wide variety of projects in the areas of literacy, numeracy, differentiated instruction, professional development for teachers and Professional Learning Communities.

In 2013, Mrs. Jodry accepted an Assistant Superintendent position with Grande Yellowhead Public School Division where she has worked collaboratively with staff and leadership in the areas of strategic planning and reporting, Learning Services, Inclusive Learning and Curriculum redesign and prototyping.

“Leslee is a dedicated and student-focused educator with proven expertise in supporting the work of teaching and learning and establishing strong, collaborative teams,” shared NGPS Superintendent Kevin Andrea. “Leslee has a demonstrated ability to lead and motivate lifelong learning among students and colleagues and we are so pleased to welcome her back to NGPS.”

Mrs. Jodry is a graduate of the University of Alberta holding a Bachelor of Education With Distinction and a Master of Education in School Improvement and Leadership.

"I am honoured and excited to return to Northern Gateway as Assistant Superintendent. Together with the dedicated educators, staff, parents and communities of Northern Gateway we will strive for excellence. With a commitment to student centered decision-making and my experience as Assistant Superintendent Learning Services, I look forward to working together as we support student learning and achievement in Northern Gateway schools." - Leslee Jodry
