She is caring leader with a strong sense of social responsibility which allows her to build positive relationships in school and with families.

Prince DuahPrince Duah is an experienced educator, having worked in the Toronto District School Board from 1996-2019 as a teacher, vice-principal, principal and, most recently, a centrally assigned principal in the Equity and School Improvement Department of the TDSB.  Prince is recognized as an exceptional leader, mentor and community builder.  His interest and experience in mathematics, human rights, and community engagement are well aligned with the OCDSB’s strategic priorities.

At the OCDSB, Superintendents of Instruction are directly responsible for the supervision of schools (elementary and secondary), as well as for all the support services and resources that are directed to those schools. In this role, Superintendents of Instruction must be knowledgeable of their communities and be responsive to them. They are required to develop and maintain good communications among students, parents, principals, trustees and board staff.

“We are so fortunate to have Shannon Smith and Prince Duah, two very talented instructional leaders, join our senior team. They bring a wealth of experience and skills to the table and will be instrumental in helping to build a culture of innovation, caring and social responsibility across the OCDSB,” said Camille Williams-Taylor, Director of Education for the OCDSB.
