|I am the managing editor of a small newsroom in Cornwall, Ont., responsible for all our local content online and in print. I have won a Canadian Community Newspaper Award for retelling the story of Winterbourne School, opened in the 19th century and closed in 2003. In addition, I have placed second in the U.S.-based National Education Writers' Association awards for "The ABCs of the EQAO," a five-part series on standardized testing. During the 2010-11 academic year, I was the Gordon N. Fisher Canadian Journalism Fellow at Massey College / University of Toronto, where I had the opportunity to audit several courses at OISE and visit schools in Germany and Finland. I still aspire to be among the best education reporters in Canada.
