The Secondary Student Success Teacher role revolves around three beliefs:

  • All students can be successful;
  • Success comes in many forms;
  • There are many pathways to success.

The Student Success Teacher (SST) is part of a bigger Student Success Team in your school. This team includes administration, student success teacher, guidance counsellor, and special education teacher. Other professionals such as classroom teachers, social workers, and child and youth workers may also support the Student Success Team.
