David PetroTenure with WECDSB: 24 years, 15 as a math and science teacher at Cardinal Carter Catholic Secondary School. 

What do you do to help students? Working in teacher learning support as a Math, Science, and IT consultant has allowed Mr. Petro to take more time to explore and research different activities for teachers to use in their classrooms to improve student success. Mr. Petro looks for the best ways to help teachers assist their students if they are having difficulty understanding a topic. Using relevant information can help engage students in learning in a more interesting environment. Adapting more modern learning strategies, such as using technology, has helped advance the interest in math and science, and more students are excelling in these areas of study. EQAO results are used to monitor student success, and can demonstrate how students progress over the three year difference between assessments. 

What keeps you motivated? Mr. Petro stays motivated by that internal need to not accept the status quo. As a teacher he never taught the same lesson the same way twice. Mr. Petro is always interested in making things better tomorrow than they were today. 

What do you love most about your job? Mr. Petro loves the ability to travel from school to school to see how things are done differently or the same. He also enjoys the autonomy to work on projects that interests him the most when he wants to.

Dave has moved into a new role as VP at Corpus Christi Catholic Elementary School.
