DE LA SALLE COL­LEGE "OAK­LANDS"

The Kids Post - - Registry of Educators - DANNY VIOTTO PRIN­CI­PAL

Danny Viotto has spent two decades in ed­u­ca­tion – hav­ing spent six years as a class­room teacher and 14 years in ad­min­is­tra­tion. As the Prin­ci­pal at De La Salle Col­lege “Oak­lands”, he un­der­stands the im­por­tance of cre­at­ing a foun­da­tion in the pri­mary and ju­nior years to en­sure the suc­cess in the stu­dents’ se­nior years. “I un­der­stand how ev­ery sin­gle day is im­por­tant for ev­ery stu­dent,” Viotto says, “and how great of an im­pact we have as ed­u­ca­tors.” Viotto be­lieves in en­gag­ing and com­mu­ni­cat­ing with staff, stu­dents and par­ents as it helps him un­der­stand and re­late to the in­tri­ca­cies of var­i­ous roles in achiev­ing stu­dent suc­cess. “In my role as ser­vant leader I lis­ten in­tently and em­pa­thet­i­cally, heal my­self and my re­la­tion­ships with oth­ers, build a pos­i­tive com­mu­nity of car­ing, eq­uity and in­clu­sion, and most im­por­tantly, in­spire those around me in or­der to cre­ate the most in­no­va­tive and nur­tur­ing, learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment for the stu­dents en­trusted to us. “A sig­nif­i­cant ex­pe­ri­ence for him as an ed­u­ca­tor was when he would take on a lead­er­ship role for the an­nual Pen­nies from Heaven Cam­paign at his pre­vi­ous Catholic Sec­ondary School. “De­liv­er­ing pack­ages to the homes and pre­sent­ing cheques to the fam­i­lies was al­ways an over­whelm­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for both staff and stu­dents.”
