Elise Daragon, an educator with 35 years experience has been named Principal of the Year for the western region of the
Catholic Principals’ Council of Ontario.

Daragon, who is currently the principal at both St. Bernard and St. Jules Catholic Elementary Schools in Windsor, began her career as an occasional teacher with the former Windsor Separate School Board in 1979. She became full-time in 1982 and has taught at all levels from Grades 1 to 8.

Prior to becoming a principal, she worked as a literacy/numeracy curriculum consultant. She has been a principal for eight years, with terms at St. Jules, St. John Vianney, Our Lady of Lourdes, and St. Bernard Catholic Elementary Schools.

A member of the steering committee for the Board’s principal and vice-principal mentoring program, she has also been involved in early reading, early math, junior literacy, and junior numeracy committees, while promoting student nutrition and active living. As a member of the Parish of St. Paul, she has been involved in various ministries for the past 25 years.

“She is a mentor for many and always willing to support others,” said Kelly Anne Power, president of the Windsor-Essex Principal Vice-Principal Association. “She is an outstanding leader in her school and her community.”

Daragon received numerous nominations from her colleagues because of her indisputable commitment to student success, Power said.

“Her mornings consistently begin with walkabouts through the school to let her students know that each one of them is  mportant to her,” Power said. “One of her practices is to add a personalized comment to each and every report card.”

Daragon will accept the award with her family on April 22nd in Toronto at CPCO’s gala dinner.
