Mary Gordon Speaks at ROE Celebration

Mary Gordon, Founder of Roots of Empathy and leader in parenting and children’s education, met the potential graduates of 2032 at an end-of-year celebration for the Roots of Empathy program on June 18th.  She addressed a group of almost 40 babies, their parents and educators, who participated in this year’s program at the Toronto Catholic District School Board.  Vice Chair Nancy Crawford and Director Angela Gauthier also attended the event.

The program has been running in TCDSB schools for several years. Recognizing the profound impact that a baby and a parent could have on students, the program helps reduce levels of aggression among children, while raising their social and emotional competence and increasing empathy.*
Ms. Gordon was recently presented with the prestigious TCDSB Award of Merit for her accomplishments in the area of early learning and as an international social entrepreneur.
