'Fearless' educator mourned
Beloved principal drowned diving in Stoney Lake
Wanted students to 'take on life with dignity'
By Hilda HOY, Staff Reporter
Students loved Althea RHOOMS.
The long-time teacher and principal had an infectious laugh and was always ready with a hug at the end of each school day.
She was also the whip-smart businesswoman who made sure students' education wasn't compromised by funding cuts, and fought tirelessly to improve her schools.
Always up for a good challenge, Rhooms was a woman described by best friend Sharon ALLEYNE as "strong, fearless."
"She could be strict in some ways, but there was always love for the students and lots of hugs," said Mike TIMOTHEOU, father of one of her students.
RHOOMS, who loved the outdoors, rowed Saturday in the Toronto International Dragon Boat Race Festival, competing on the Toronto District School Board team.
The next day, she participated in a practice dive at Stoney Lake near Peterborough with her scuba diving club. She had been diving almost weekly for a year, Friends and family said.
But on Sunday, she began having breathing problems under water and never made it up. She was 43.
The coroner's office is still probing what caused her death.
RHOOMS worked as a teacher before serving as vice-principal at McMurrich Junior Public School for two years, and then principal at Humewood Community School for three years.
She transferred to Maple Leaf Public School this past December, following her passion to the Jane St. and Lawrence Ave. neighbourhood where 65 per cent of her students have African or Caribbean backgrounds.
"She wanted them to grow up and take on life with dignity," said ALLEYNE.
RHOOMS volunteered for Women for P.A.C.E. (Project for Advancement of Childhood Education), a group promoting early childhood education in both Canada and her native Jamaica.
"She wanted to be a leader in the African Canadian community," said Trustee Josh MATLOW. "(At Maple Leaf) she found a place in the world to be a leader and provide mentorship to young students."
Principal Rita GARRY, who took RHOOMS's place at Humewood, said she took the assignment at the new school because "there were a lot of students from the black community there. She wanted to be a role model for the female students."
Flags were flying at half-mast and grief counsellors had been brought in at her former schools.
At a graduation ceremony at Maple Leaf yesterday, students spent what should have been a day of celebration, memorializing a lost friend.
RHOOMS leaves her parents, younger brothers Wayne and Jason, and her 18-year-old son, Gyasi. Funeral arrangements are still being made.
