We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Mary-Beth Minthorn-Biggs to our team as our Inclusive Education Clinician.

Dr. Mary-Beth Minthorn-Biggs has a Doctorate in Psychology from the University of Toronto and a strong clinical and research background in student academic assessment and achievement. Her career and consulting history spans across several healthcare and educational settings and include experience at both senior management and supervisory levels.

As a clinician, she not only is able to support early diagnosis by assessments, but she can support, implement and monitor intervention models for our students, educators, families and communities.

Dr. Minthorn-Biggs is moving back to Northwestern Ontario from Iqaluit, Nunavut where she was employed as the Family Services Specialist with the Department of Family Services, Child and Family Services Division, for the Government of Nunavut.

"I am blessed to work together with the Superior North Catholic team, so we can truly make a difference in the lives of our students and families. As an individual who pursues life-long learning, there is no better opportunity for me to continue this passion than through the gifts and daily opportunities shared by the students.” - Dr. Minthorn-Biggs.

We are thrilled that Dr. Minthorn-Biggs joins our Superior North Catholic District School Board family. Her strong advocacy for children and youth, along with her skills and experience, will be a welcomed addition to our Board.

Please join us in welcoming Dr. Minthorn-Biggs on June 6, 2017.
