Congratulations to Mariana Hammoud, Office Administrator for receiving the 2022-2023 Director's Citation Award! This award recognizes outstanding and significant staff contributions to the District and its students, over an extended period of time, showing a level of imagination, enthusiasm, and professionalism that constitutes a worthy model for others.

Mariana Hammoud has been an exemplary leader throughout her career, highly respected by the colleagues, students, staff and communities she has served. While she is currently the Office Administrator at York Street Public School, she is also being recognized for her decades of work with the International and Indigenous Languages Program, the Family Resource Centre (FRC), Adult ESL, and Continuing Education. Mariana received multiple nominations, all celebrating her positive outlook, kindness, compassion, and perseverance. Mariana has represented the OCDSB with care, respect and dignity, continuously showing her support and dedication to the community, and particularly towards new Canadian families being welcomed into the system. Referred to as the heart and soul of the FRC over many years, families often return to thank Mariana for her work and share their childrens’ successes with her. She understands how important it is to be as helpful as possible to those who have limited experience with a formal education system, instilling confidence at a time that would otherwise be very stressful. Mariana builds and maintains strong peer relationships, with the understanding that teamwork and collaboration allows us to provide our best service to others! Mariana holds strong ethical values in education and maintains a high standard of practice in her work environment, and yet is famous for her sense of humour and infectious laugh.

Thank you Mariana for the contributions you have made to our school community!
