I have been a passionate educator with the NNDSB for 28 years. I have experience in special programming, EQAO, Literacy testing, Parents Advisory Council, and extracurricular funding and associated opportunities for students. As a trustee, I believe taxpayers and students deserve an honest, accountable and transparent approach to capital spending on education.
It is important that Trustees be visual in schools, and to provide an open forum for students, teachers, administrators and the public. Quality education should not be judged solely on graduation rates but rather the educational framework and associated expectations that all users are aware of and can be proud of. Students are the priority, and my experience as an involved educator, will bring a practical perspective to expenditures and required programming within the Board.
I am committed to working with students, parents, teachers, administrators and fellow Board members to provide a safe, equitable and productive educational environment. I am dedicated to serving this community and look forward to continuing to look for opportunities to maintain educational excellence.
