Why did you decide to run in the 2014 School Board Election?
The Winnipeg School Division school board sets policy for about half the public school students of the province. With my background as a doctoral researcher in Educational Technology, my experience as a learning assessment specialist working in Manitoba First Nations' communities, my years of public school teaching experience at every level, I bring more than a desire to contribute and to be involved.
Why doesn't the division have an online high school?
How is the division transforming its self into a leader for the kind of learning its students will need to thrive in 21st century?
Vote for me because I have a cost-saving vision of education. Vote for me for strong leadership on the board to take Winnipeg School Division #1 into the 21st century.
What experience will you bring to compliment your role as School Trustee?
Vote for Sheri Oberman if you want an experienced educator.
My experience as a teacher would come in handy to compliment my role as a School Trustee. I've taught in four school divisions in Manitoba and three education authorities. In my career I've taught nursery, kindergarten, grades 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and senior years. I've been a special education/resource teacher and a guidance counselor.
I've taught adults in a penitentiary, Bachelor of Education students at University College of the North, and the University of Winnipeg.
I've taught graduate students in an online university.
Most recently I worked as a Learning Assessment Specialist for Manitoba First Nations Education Resource Centre.
In addition I have leadership experience in a learning institution and leadership training. I was elected Vice-President of my graduate students association.
I've taught in the inner city, in blue collar Winnipeg, in a religious school, in First Nations communities, in Mennonite Manitoba, in the North, and in an online environment.

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?
Winnipeg #1 School Division needs to embrace:
-Changing the industrial or factory model of education where learning is centered around time and the credit hour. (cost savings) -Embrace greater transparency in assessment and more peer and self assessment. with students and staff -Use the checkpoint assessments in the system at grades 3, (4 in French Immersion), 7, 8 and SY 4 to plan and track student performance. - Become less hierarchical in the org structure (cost savings) - Stop nepotism in hiring practices - Examine the Comprehensive Assessment Program (CAP) as a cost /benefit analysis
What is one thing in particular that you appreciate about the school ward or school division you wish to represent?
As the largest, most diverse, and oldest school division in the province, Winnipeg School Division, prepares Manitoba's citizenry for the challenges of the future. Getting education right so that Manitoba remains a competitive, viable economic entity has never been more critical. With Sheri Oberman on the board of the school division, Winnipeg School Division will continue to produce a world class education.
Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?
One of the other candidates claims they were asked to run in this election, yet the endorsements on her website do not come a single person who pleaded with the candidate to run for election. This is the kind of discrepancy I would notice in the claims set forth before me as a school trustee. Test the information claims of the other candidates and when you will see that they don't add up, vote for me. Sheri Oberman, the best choice for Ward 1, Winnipeg SD #1.
