Brendan Browne is a widely respected educational leader, teacher, author, husband, and father, and is proud to serve the Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB) as its 14th Director of Education. 

Throughout his educational career as a Teacher, Vice-Principal, Principal, Superintendent, Executive Superintendent, and now as Director of Education and Chief Executive Officer of the TCDSB, Dr. Browne has remained focused on improving outcomes for students, families, and communities. His commitment to student achievement, equity, and mental health and well-being, firmly rooted in faith, is articulated in the TCDSB’s Multi-Year Strategic Plan.

His publications and presentations include research and expertise on teaching and learning, special education, educational leadership, invitational leadership, systemic change, and Catholic education. Dr. Browne is the author of the book “Leading for Educational Lives: Inviting and Sustaining Imaginative Acts of Hope in a Connected World”, along with numerous magazine, journal articles, and Catholic leadership course modules. Brendan has served on provincial and international committees and boards focused on educational leadership, and currently serves on the provincial committee for school mental health, and internationally on the Board of Directors for a Christian mission hospital in Kenya.

As a graduate of the Catholic school system, Dr. Browne remains intimately connected to the importance of the application of Catholic values to our work as educators. Most importantly, Brendan is a husband to Sarah, and father to two girls who are TCDSB students in both elementary and secondary schools. It is at the intersection of faith and family that Dr. Browne grounds his educational leadership and vision for the Toronto Catholic District School Board.
