Catholic Teachers welcome Minister Leona Dombrowsky to Education

TORONTO, Jan. 18 /CNW/ - Ontario's Catholic Teachers welcome Leona Dombrowsky who was named Ontario Minister of Education during a cabinet shuffle today.

"We are confident that we will forge a constructive and productive relationship with our new Minister of Education, and look forward to working with her in this capacity," says James Ryan, president of the Ontario English Catholic Teachers' Association (OECTA). "Her experience as Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs since 2005 and as a former trustee and chairperson of the Algonquin Lakeshore Catholic School Board will serve her well.

"We wish Minister Wynne well in her new portfolio," Ryan says. Recent education accomplishments "were enhanced by frequent consultation with all education stakeholders including teachers and parents. Minister Wynne's previous experience as a school trustee, and as Founder of Toronto's Metro Parent Network and also of Citizens for Local Democracy, honed her understanding of the importance of cooperation and dialogue."

OECTA represents the 45,000 women and men who teach from kindergarten through high school in Ontario's publicly funded English Catholic schools.
