Praxis – Philosophy in Action

I am Jordan Tinney, Superintendent/CEO in Surrey School District. Surrey is the largest school district in BC, and one of the largest in Canada.  We serve a diverse and rapidly growing urban community. We have approximately 75,000 students and 12,000 staff who serve our students in 131 schools.

This blog is part of my professional portfolio. I have a Ph.D. in Curriculum, a Masters in Educational Leadership and in 2020 I completed a program as a Certified Evidence-Based Executive Coach. I feel very passionate about public education and I get great satisfaction from helping others. I am fortunate to be asked to speak and facilitate at numerous events in a wide array of contexts and I always appreciate the change to share in the growth and learning of individuals, teams, and districts.

The comments on this blog represent my own views and not those of the district or the Surrey Board of Education.
