About Robert Radway

The City of Burlington has been my home since my elementary school days. More recently, I have been fortunate to be able to call the Ward One community “my home” for the past 22 years. I have worked as a teacher since 1997, including jobs at Appleby College in Oakville and as well as Pineland Public School, here in Burlington. Since then, I have taught for the past 21 years at Burlington Central High School. My profession has provided an opportunity for me to listen to and engage with countless individuals. The feedback from individuals is key, especially in our community. Open, honest, and transparent communication with all of our citizens provides the key to maintaining past achievements and furthering our success in the future. Active community discussion will allow Ward One to move forward on development, within the framework of environmental concerns.


Robert Radway graduated from Nelson High School and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Carleton University. He completed the Master of Science in Education from Niagara University. He is currently a teacher at Burlington Central High School. He has successfully fulfilled several leadership positions throughout his career. More specifically, as a Student Success program coordinator, and as a program leader/department head for Canadian and World Studies, and for the Physical and Health Education Department. He has a specialist in English as a Second Language and Special Education. Additionally, he has completed both parts and all the requirements for the Principals Qualification Course. Robert continues to volunteer a great amount of his time outside the traditional classroom setting, at his school. As well, Robert’s care and concern for his Burlington and Ward One community is reflected in his volunteer time and attention provided to local clean-up initiatives, and his support for other Burlington Green events.
