Questionnaire Response

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

I have been a trustee for 31 years and Chairperson of the Board since 1990. With three grandchildren now, two of whom attend Seine River School Division schools, I continue to be passionate and enthusiastic about ensuring the best education possible for all children. Seine River has made many, many improvements over the years and continues to be a strong and innovative division. I sincerely wish to continue to be part of something that ensures our children receive the best education possible.

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

I consider myself to be a life-long learner. I have a college diploma as well as a Certificate in Adult Education from the University of Manitoba. I continually attend workshops and training to enhance my learning and understanding of education principles and philosophy, education finances, etc. My work experience in the worlds of both child care and family services give me a very broad understanding of the issues facing children, families and schools.

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?

Accountability - the Board is entrusted with funding for education through both provincial and local taxation. It is our responsibility to balance providing a strong / fair education for our children with ensuring funds are spent efficiently and effectively.

Openness and Accessibility - it is very important that all stakeholders in education feel that they can approach not just their local trustee, but their school board with their ideas and concerns. The Board must be responsible to listen and understand concerns, but still to act in the best interests of the whole division.

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

Seine River School Division is an awesome division! We strongly believe in inclusion for all students and that all children can learn. Our core ethical values of Honesty, Empathy and Respect govern all decisions.
