Charity of Choice:Angel Foundation for Learning

Maria Teresa Bernardi has been in the Toronto Catholic School Board for decades, as a student, a teacher, and presently as a principal! Some may call her a teacher’s pet, but truth be told it’s her great love for children that keeps her going. Maria loves to learn new things, whether in her day job as a principal or as a dance student at Arthur Murray Woodbridge!

Maria has been to Africa twice volunteering to build schools and to teach math to students in the small villages of Kenya.  She is a member of the TCDSB/WE Charity committee that looks at supporting schools and  students in becoming leaders by volunteering in local and global opportunities.

Maria was awarded the Join the Dance Canada Special Educator Award in 2013 for promoting Ballroom dancing for the last 10 years to 10-12 year olds in her schools. She also has helped her schools reach victory by winning the Dancing Classroom Championship trophy six times!
Maria was also honoured by the school’s parent council to be a finalist and nominee in the TAPCE Principal of Excellence Award in 2011-2012.

Maria enjoys helping people, especially children which can be seen by her choice of charity: The Angel Foundation for Learning.

As the official charity of the TCDSB, the mandate is to support  children’s education, with an emphasis on social justice. It is a sad fact that many of Toronto’s students live below the poverty line. Through essential nutritional, educational, social and emergency support programs, the Angel Foundation works to give every student an equal opportunity to succeed. No child should go without medication, eyeglasses, winter clothing or breakfast- just a few examples of the wonderful work of the Angel Foundation.

Please help Maria, help them! Donate to the Angel Foundation for Learning. Our kids deserve it!
