Q: Why do you want to become a school trustee and what experience or other qualities would you bring to the table?

A: I’ve asked myself many times why I want to be a trustee. The closest I can get to putting it in to words is, I want to do my best to make it as easy as possible for students to succeed.

What I bring to the table is extensive experience at the school, district and provincial levels. I bring the knowledge of a parent and grandparent and the integrity and enthusiasm of someone who is truly interested in public education.

 

Q: What are your top three priorities if you were to become a trustee?

 

A: My priorities are the students. I will strive to always keep their best interest in mind when making decisions. I believe that the current district strategic plan and the key elements of quality teaching and learning, flexibility and choice and high standards will help achieve this.

 

Q: What education issues do you see as problematic now, and what could be done to address them?

 

A: I wouldn’t describe any areas as problematic but that is probably because I’m an optimist. There are always areas that could use improvement and some that come to mind are:

Making sure each student has the supports that they need to succeed.

Keeping students engaged in their own education.

Encouraging families to be engaged in their child’s education.

What I could do as a trustee, is assist the work that the educators are already doing by backing policies and budget items that support the educators to keep students engaged and focused and on track to graduate.
