Potvin grew up in Azilda, where she attended Chelmsford Public School and Chelmsford Valley District Composite School.

“My family was actively involved in the community through sports,” she said.

“We spent a great deal of time in the arenas and on the baseball fields. I am delighted to assume my new role as Principal of my former high school and welcome the opportunity to work in a community that has a special place in my heart. What a privilege.”

After graduating from Chelmsford Valley District Composite School in 1990, Potvin attended Laurentian University, where she earned an honours bachelor of arts degree. She obtained a bachelor of education degree from the University of Western Ontario.

Since joining Rainbow District School Board in 1996, Potvin has served in a number of roles at many secondary schools, including teacher, program leader, student success teacher, guidance counsellor and vice-principal.

Throughout her career, she has worked at Northeastern Secondary School, Sudbury Secondary School, Lockerby Composite School and, most recently, Lasalle Secondary School where she has been a Vice-Principal since 2007.

“I strongly believe in the community school, where students can work, learn and play in the community in which they live,” she said. “I look forward to working with the students, staff, parents/guardians and school community in my new role as Principal.”
