Why did you decide to run in the 2010 school board election?
I understand the value that education has in the lives of our children. Each child has unique talents and abilities and must be given the opportunity to explore these. I am committed to quality education for all students. All Students must have the help and programming available to grow to their potential. Because of my experience as an educator and a leader I believe I can make a contribution to the school board and Pembina Trails Division .Please given me that opportunity to provide a fresh perspective. on October 27.
What experience will you bring to complement your role as school trustee?
During my career as a registered nurse I have had leadership roles at St Boniface Hospital. I have taught nursing at Red River College, University of Manitoba and St Boniface Hospital. The majority of my career has been spent working with new parents and children or teaching about these developmental stages.
I have been a strong advocate for young people with disabilities and mental illness and as a result of this became involved in lobbying and the political process.
Although being a parent is not essential to being a school trustee, my experiences raising my own children has given me an understanding of the uniqueness and challenges of each child.
What are the major issues you would like to stand for and why did you choose these issues?
- Classroom composition and impact on student learning
- Safety in our schools and bullying
- The need for preschool programs, to address school readiness
- Programming supports for Newcomers and Aboriginal students
- Enhancing current technology in classrooms
- Overcrowding of Pembina Trails High Schools
Is there anything in particular you would like to change in your school division? In your ward?
As mentioned previously the high schools in the division are overcrowded. I would advocate for and lobby the provincial government to fund a new school. Research has shown that the better prepared or ready a child is for school, the better they will do. Preschool programs would address some of these needs.
Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?
Formative and summative learning are discussed in PTSD policies. I understand that in formative learning each child learns at his /her own rate and is allowed some flex in evaluation. Some research shows that in elementary school it may be better to allow the student to move on with their peer group. They can catch up with some additional help. However I have some serious concerns about this type of evaluation in junior high and up. I have had questions from parents in my ward about this issue. I would very much like to find out more information as to what is happening in our schools at this time.
In conclusion I would like to state that my entire decision making would be guided by balancing between fiscal responsibility and quality education for our children
