About Me

Sue Dunlop

I am a learner who loves to reflect, discuss and act on new ideas and inspirations. Currently, I am Superintendent of Student Achievement in Hamilton, Ontario within the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board. I have the privilege to work within a diverse senior management team. I learn alongside principals, vice principals and system leaders to create the conditions for both staff and student learning. The best part of my day is a thoughtful, insightful conversation with someone who thinks differently from me. I enjoy having my thinking challenged, even though that can be hard.

All opinions and perspectives shared here are my own. When I use the term “educators”, I mean teachers, educational assistants, early childhood educators and principals and vice principals. These valuable roles all work together to help students learn. Add your ideas and questions in the comments so we can learn together.

    Hello Sue.

    I am a first year Queens Unddergrad majoring in psychology. I’m very keen on education reform and leadership; however, I hold worry that with few positions open for teachers with the oversupply, that it will be very diffuclt to work in education administration without being teacher. I am asking about your thoughts on this matter and any points to help guide me?

    Best Regards,

    • I think you’re right – it is difficult, but not impossible. There are a number of positions available in central office that don’t require teacher qualifications.
