Questionnaire Response

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

I am seeking re-election as your school trustee. I believe our students have a right to an education delivered in a safe and caring environment. I believe the experience gained as a member of your board of Trustees will be an asset to me as our Division faces the challenges ahead. I want all children to feel that their school experience is the best that it can be!

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

As a parent, and now a grandparent, I have always been involved in our community. At an early age I was taught the importance of volunteering and contributing to our community. When my children were small, I served as President of the KWCC nursery school. When they entered the St. James-Assiniboia School Division, I served on numerous committees at each school level, concluding with co-chairing the Safe Grad committee. I also served as Kirkfield Westwood Community Centre's president for 3 years. I am currently the Vice-Chair of the St. James-Assiniboia School Division Board of Trustees. As your Kirkfirld-St. Charles ward representative, I have welcomed your opinions and concerns. I will continue to be accessible so we can work together towards the success of our students.

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 that our schools are an integral community partner. Ultimately, student success requires the collaborative efforts of staff, students, parents, as well as community and business members. Changing demographics has led to increasing differences in student backgrounds, abilities, needs and desires, creating a more diverse student population than ever before. The result of these changes means that our Division must continue to explore new and innovative approaches to programming and services for its students.

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

While serving as a School Trustee for the last eight years, I have come to understand that our School Division has high expectations: for student achievement based on their individual abilities, for employees to continue to grow and develop, and for our school programs and services to ensure that these are innovative and increase the potential of our students.

Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?

I ask for your consideration as I seek re-election as your Trustee. It has been my privilege to represent the Kirkfield-St. Charles Ward. I am committed to work with educational partners in the community to provide an environment that will enable students to be active and successful learners.
