The position of Director of Education at Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board (SMCDSB) was recently posted after the announcement of Brian Beal’s retirement which took effect last month.
An independent agency is currently conducting a thorough recruitment process and anticipate it will take a least a few months to permanently fill this important leadership role. In the meantime, Catherine McCullough will lead the board as the Interim Director of Education.
McCullough served the Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board for 17 years in several roles including teacher, principal and superintendent of education. She was promoted to the position of Director of Education for the Sudbury Catholic District School Board and most recently has been working in a research and consultation capacity. She continues to work closely with school boards across the country on training programs which are focussed on change management, organizational relationships and strong leadership.
