Dr. Mauricière de Govia

Executive Superintendent

QS Leadship Bio, "She is committed to transforming communities and redefining generational legacies via high quality teaching and learning experiences in public schools. Throughout her career she has led and supported schools as a teacher, principal, superintendent, and policy maker with the firm belief that a child’s zip code, origin, race or class is not a pre-determined hindrance to learning; but an opportunity for a new narrative that tells a story of success and achievement for all students who attend public school."
