Questionnaire Response

Why did you decide to run in the 2014 School Board Election?

I strongly believe that a child’s education is paramount in helping to shape their future. As a mom and a longstanding community volunteer, I truly care about our children and I am deeply committed to strengthening our schools and ensuring the highest quality of education possible through innovative and fiscally responsible ways.

I was first inspired to consider running as a School Trustee when I volunteered as a Community Representative on the Chapman School Review Committee (2007). My interest was further peeked while engaging in information sessions regarding the upcoming grade restructuring at École Dieppe.

What experience will you bring to compliment your role as School Trustee?

As a Manager for a large Crown corporation, I have proven to be a well-organized, budget-conscious, leader and problem-solver. As a volunteer, I have given my time at various organizations and events including Winnipeg Harvest, Manitoba Marathon, Siloam Mission, Folklorama and Barge Festival. Most recently, I enjoyed coaching my daughter’s mini-soccer team this past spring. Some of the skills and experience that I will bring with me to my role as a School Trustee include the following: • A collaborative approach – working together to resolve issues • Experience in strategic and business planning, budgeting and staff management • Demonstrated competence in team work and leadership skills • Strong communications and dedication to community engagement

What are some issues that you would like to stand for in your role as School Trustee, and why are these issues important to you?

The principles that will guide me in my role as School Trustee include the following:

  1. As a parent, I tell my daughter that it is my job to ensure she is nurtured – mind, body and spirit – to ensure she realizes her full potential. I believe that the programs and policies that we set at the Board level need to ensure that our school system similarly cultivates our students. This includes the overall safety and well-being of our students and staff and their learning and working environment.

  2. I want to bring a fresh perspective to the Board, and will consider different viewpoints to ensure we deliver quality education in a fiscally responsible manner.

  3. Communication and community engagement are extremely important. As a School Trustee, I will ensure open, honest and timely communication with the staff, parents and residents in my ward.

What is one thing in particular that you appreciate about the school ward or school division you wish to represent?

I was inspired by the Belief Statement: 21st Century Learning and the Three Expectations for Student Learning that the Pembina Trails School Division has established and published on their website. These things in conjunction with the clearly laid-out Mission and Values for PTSD are important guiding principles that I would refer to when making decisions.

Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?

I live in Charleswood with my husband, Chris Fedorchuk, and my two daughters, Addison (7) and Grae (1). I am committed to our community - to the students, parents, staff and taxpayers. There will be challenges ahead, but I will keep you informed and engaged in the decision-making process, as we work to find solutions. As your School Trustee, I will welcome your feedback and look forward to developing the future generation, together.
