Welcome to Valleycliffe Elementary School!

My name is Ji Ai Cho and I am the Principal at VCE.  I have been an educator for over twenty seven years as a classroom teacher and as an administrator.  My educational background includes: BEd (Secondary Sc Ed), MEd (Curriculum Studies) and currently, I am working on my Ed D at UBC.  As well, I have also been a volunteer trainer for Education Beyond Borders (EBB) working in Kenya for three summers.  My hobbies include travelling, studying natural history and paleontology.

I believe that we should engage all our learners with fun and memorable experiences at school. I know that we can take the students at VCE to achieve excellence beyond the core skills and competencies using purposeful powerful learning opportunities.

This year, we are focusing on three school goals: collaboration, kindness and self-regulation. As well, we will be working toward achieving the SD48 Strategic Plan.

I look forward to working with the staff, students and the parents of VCE again this year!

Please contact me at school (604)892-9394 or at if you have any questions or concerns.
