Phil Baker


Phil Baker enjoys the reputation of a school leader who is able to move a school forward. During his many years as a school principal, Phil successfully engaged all stakeholders in efforts to improve the learning environment. He remains current in his reading and focused on student achievement.

As a colleague, Phil mentored many new principals and vice-principals, as well as serving as an advisor to district leaders. He also led the local Ontario Principals’ Council (OPC) group and was a Provincial Councillor for many years. Consequently, Phil developed a broad network across the province.

In recent years, Phil worked within the Student Achievement Division, the Literacy Numeracy Secretariat of the Ministry of Education. As a Student Achievement Officer, he was engaged with a number of districts in co-planning, co-facilitating sessions on system improvement, implementation and monitoring. Phil continues to be called upon to replace principals on extended leave.

Phil is an exceptional teacher with a deep understanding of what it takes to lead a school and imparts that knowledge with the greatest of skills. Those participating in his International School Leadership Modules in Denmark, the Cayman Islands, and online, consistently rank the experience as exceptional.


Kristi Odeen

Kristi has served as a school leader for more than 20 years. Between 2007 and 2015, Kristi was the principal of Queen Sonjas School in Norway. This state-of-the-art school, with an open, modern architecture, provided opportunities for students to learn in untraditional ways. Further, the physical structure allowed for school-wide collaboration and team teaching that led to strong professional learning, including a number of study tours to other schools and countries to learn together about history, art and pedagogy.

Since 2015, Kristi, as a member of the Directorate of Education Team in the Supervisory Corps, has been focused on supporting local board administrators in efforts to implement organizational change and improve student achievement. Specifically, she assists in a continual improvement process that involves analyzing needs, seeking opportunities to address the needs, setting goals, taking action and evaluating the outcomes.

Improving student learning with changes in instructional practices has been an academic focus during her Master’s degree and a central focus of her leadership as a school leader.
