Council Appoints Michael Salvatori as next College Registrar

The College Council today appointed former London principal and teacher Michael Salvatori as the next College Registrar and Chief Executive Officer.

Salvatori worked for seven years at the College – most recently as Director of Membership Services – before taking up a teaching post at York University’s Glendon College in 2008.

The 42-year-old educator initially came to the College from the London Catholic District School Board where he worked as a vice-principal and principal and taught at both the elementary and secondary levels. He taught core French, French immersion and German, and is the author or co-author of numerous French textbooks and teacher resources. He has also taught in France and Italy.

“The Ontario College of Teachers has established itself as a key foundation of excellence in public education in Ontario,” says Salvatori. “It maintains a keen focus on protecting the public interest in public education by licensing first-rate teaching professionals to provide high-quality learning experiences for students in Ontario, ensuring consistency in teacher preparedness, promotion of the standards of the profession and adjudicating matters of discipline. It is a privilege to serve as the College’s Registrar and to work together with the College Council, staff and our stakeholders.”

Michael Salvatori’s teaching qualifications are listed on the College web site along with those of all other Ontario certified teachers Find a Teacher. His registration number is 200020.
