No matter who you are, where you live or how long you went to school, chances are there is at least one teacher who made a significant, positive impact on your life! For me, it’s Mr. Gilroy – he made history come alive. He encouraged critical thinking before it was popular and found faith and beauty in God and nature. His classes were joyful and kind.
Who is your Mr. Gilroy?

Join us in making some noise on social media. Let’s recognize those teachers who brighten the lives of all they meet inside and outside the classroom.
We know the Ottawa Catholic School Board is a great community to learn and work. Thanks to all the exceptional employees who make the OCSB a great Board to work and learn.
