Questionnaire Response

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

There is a common understanding among parents that the feedback loop between policy decisions and the impact on teachers and students is too long. As our children grow we also come to learn that we can not go back and start all over again. Putting a parent on the St. James-Assiniboia school board would be a vote for making sure policy decisions are done right the first time and add an urgency to oversight of the administration.

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

I bring an academic, private sector and parenting background to the election. My graduate studies background gives me knowledge of what is required to prepare students for university. As a private sector manager i understand the skill set students will need in the workforce and how to prioritize when working with a limited budget. Finally as a parent with children in elementary, middle and high school, I have first hand knowledge of how all three levels of school are working.

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 main issue that I would like to stand for is that principals, parents and students are empowered to influence school board policy.

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

I know that principals and teachers are going to great lengths to make school enjoyable. As a parent I know that everything good starts from children wanting to be at school.

Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?

Our family has found everything we wanted in the St. James-Assiniboia school division, but I also know of families that have not. I know what works and would like to use that knowledge to make the school years rewarding for every last child.
