We would like to announce that Elizabeth Bell will retire from the BCPVPA on November 1, 2021 after five and a half years as a Director of Professional Learning and Development. Prior to BCPVPA, Elizabeth was a secondary educator and administrator in the North Vancouver School District for 25 years, where her passion for building a thriving learning community extended to her work with students, staff, parents and the community at large.
This same passion continued for Elizabeth as she endeavoured to enrich school leadership through her work at the BCPVPA. Elizabeth always enjoyed sharing conversations about professional learning and educational leadership with her colleagues across the province and beyond. Through inspiring new ideas, creating professional learning networks and providing leadership opportunities, Elizabeth delighted in supporting school leadership development.
Through October, Liz will continue to support the transition at BCPVPA to new PLD Directors Andrea McComb and Peter Johnston as they assume the reigns of current and future PLD programs and activities.
We will miss Elizabeth greatly, and wish her all the best as she embarks on her next stage of learning and living including time with family, travel, and life in the great outdoors.
