Michael Brown, Principal

I have been the Principal at St. Jude since 2020. After teaching in elementary school in Mexico for 2 years and running a language school for two years, I came back to Montreal and taught in high school. I started in admin in 2010 as a high school VP. I then became Principal of Elizabeth Ballantyne school before starting at St. Jude.  I believe that alongside strong foundational skills in literacy, numeracy, and critical thinking, children need to develop adaptability, resilience, and creativity to thrive in an increasingly complex world. Encouraging curiosity, fostering a growth mindset, and promoting collaboration are essential. We need to be equipping children with digital literacy, problem-solving abilities, and socio-emotional skills to enable them to navigate challenges and seize opportunities in the future with confidence and competence. By nurturing a well-rounded education that values both academic achievement and personal development, we empower our elementary school children to become adaptable, innovative, and compassionate leaders of tomorrow.

Elisa Elliot, Office Agent

Hi, I’m Miss Elisa. I have been at St. Jude for five years now and am so proud to be member of a team that strives to support its students’ academic, social, and emotional development. My background in psychology and the arts has focused on the beauty of everyday moments, and I am fortunate to witness such beauty at St. Jude every single day. In my spare time, I love exploring life with photography, mixed media art, books, writing, most importantly, my family.

Giovanna Rodi, Teacher in Cycle 2 Immersion

 I love St. Jude because it feels like a home away from home.  As an educator, my goal is to plant the seeds of success by teaching growth mindset and instilling the St. Jude core values.

I am a facilitator on the Student Council Committee. The students who are on this committee meet with us regularly, contribute their ideas and work collaboratively to plan events and improve our school. I believe in empowering children to use their voice, and to make a difference.
