Teacher and administrator Jean-Luc Bernard has been appointed by the provincial government as a public representative on the College Council.
Bernard worked in the French-language education field for more than 30 years.
He was Director of Education at the Viamonde School Board from 2002 to 2010. Viamonde’s district extends west to east from Windsor to Trenton and north to south from Penetanguishene to the Niagara region.
Bernard began his career as a teacher, a position he held for nearly 10 years.
After working for several years as a classroom consultant, he was named Superintendent of Education for the Metropolitan Toronto French-Language School Council (MTFLSC) in August 1994. At the time, the Council served Metropolitan Toronto’s public education system for the francophone community.
When the MTFLSC was replaced by the Viamonde School Board in January 1998, Bernard stayed on as Superintendent of Education. His responsibilities included providing student services as well as supporting a range of educational services.
“I am very pleased to have been selected, for I believe the College does excellent work in supporting teachers in the interest of the public. My involvement in local, provincial and Canada-wide committees has given me a broad perspective which I hope will be beneficial to the College Council.”
Bernard holds a Master’s degree in Education and Bachelor’s degrees in both Education and Sociology from the University of Ottawa. He is qualified as both a principal and a supervisory officer.
Bernard, OCT was appointed to Council in July 2012.
