Lorna Cameron - As a teacher and school administrator, I wish I had realized the strong influence student voice has on positive student outcomes and school growth. I now inspire educators as they collaborate in school planning to activate the power of student voice, including students as participants in the school planning process and change-makers in their learning journey.
Stephanie Richardson - I have always been interested in using data to tell a story, and this led me to obtain a masters degree focused on youth mental health. I find it especially rewarding to help others understand and interpret their data. I enjoy having conversations about how school context can help to explain results. Stephanie is currently on maternity leave with her sweet baby girl Charlotte and will return to the team in fall 2020.
Danielle Durepos - I feel privileged to lead such a talented group of subject matter experts who are dedicated to supporting clients as they engage with and create their data stories. My passion is helping educators understand the benefits of reliable and valid survey construction and providing support as they navigate the survey and data analysis process.
Joel Henderson - I am excited to help others, and while there are many fields in which I could accomplish this, I feel that education is the one in which I can have the greatest impact. Having spent time teaching in the classroom, I have a long-standing interest in helping children thrive and take great pride in supporting educators as they understand and explore their data. Knowing that our efforts help enrich students’ lives is very satisfying.
Meghan Hadley - Schools have increasingly diverse communities, with families from a range of backgrounds. I coordinate translation and support other research projects to ensure the data you need is available & accessible for your community stakeholders. I believe helping engage all families and community members can help all students achieve success at every level.
Jennifer Morgen - As educators, you have so many valuable sources of data to draw from. But it takes time, effort, and sometimes a little bit of guidance to leverage this into meaningful change in the lives of students. Before joining TLB, I taught statistics labs for 10 years and worked with individuals at all levels of data literacy. One of my favourite parts of the data process is when people recognize the data story in their school context and get excited to share it.
The Engagement Team combines extensive classroom teaching and school leadership experience with deep knowledge of the research and analysis underpinning OurSCHOOL. With their combined knowledge and experience they can support schools to use perception data as evidence to impact school growth.
