Why did you decide to run in the 2014 School Board Election?
I decided to run for school trustee because I saw first hand how my father was able to engage in people in our town in constructive way to encourage positive change when he was School Trustee. I am a young parent who hopes to make this ward better than it already is for children currently enrolled and those that will follow. Winnipeg in my home; it is where I was born and where I am now raising my family. I am motivated to work for my community – to engage, to listen, to share, to bring about positive change for our families.
What experience will you bring to compliment your role as School Trustee?
Attending Fort Richmond Collegiate, attaining my degrees at the local University of Manitoba, and eventually becoming a teacher, makes me a homegrown candidate for School Trustee. As a teacher, I consistently deal with the students, parents, educators and administrators, which gives me firsthand experience to be a School Trustee.
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?
I believe the most important issue is the overcrowding of classrooms. This poses a challenge because we are not able to give adequate attention to the individual needs of students. Teachers become overtaxed in many areas: there are not enough resources, the diverse background of students in abilities and culture, marking load, physical space in the class, and the list can go on. The connection between student and teacher is compromised when there are too many people in a classroom.
What is one thing in particular that you appreciate about the school ward or school division you wish to represent?
I appreciate the diverse cultures that Pembina Trails Ward 3 is comprised of. Attending Fort Richmond Collegiate, I experienced this first hand. Parents and communities all express their happiness living in an area that celebrates Canada’s diversity. This enriches a child’s experiences as they attend schools in the division.
Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?
I am grateful for the opportunity to stand as a school trustee candidate for Pembina Trails Ward 3.
