Viotto began his teaching career in 1997. Since 2003, he has served as a vice principal at two secondary schools in the Huron Superior Catholic School Board, and in 2010, he was appointed principal of St. Mary’s College, Sault Saint Marie, Ontario. Most recently, Viotto has served as principal of Our Lady of Lourdes Elementary School, also in Sault Saint Marie.
Viotto summarizes his approach to school leadership in the following way: “Each day I pray and reflect asking God to use me… to use my life. I have learned to understand that the vision for my life is far greater than my imagination can hold and as a Catholic leader I am blessed to have the opportunity to come to work each day and ask God, ‘What would you have me to do?’”
