Why did you decide to run in the 2010 school board election?
I ran for school board in 2006 and thought it would only be for one term to help improve education for children in the Winnipeg School Division but the more you become involved the more opportunities you see to improve education. I moved the no smoking motion ban in the Winnipeg school division and it passed in Feb/07’ . From there I moved on to other issues I felt were important like getting junk food out of school vending machines. Most of all working on how to graduate students ready to meet the world and its challenges.
What experience will you bring to complement your role as school trustee?
I am experienced as a mother, with children who have graduated from the Winnipeg School Division. I am very proud of the division and in my business career I was exposed to countries without a public school system. The countries are weak and their children are unable to reach their true potential. My business experience included problem solving, collaborating and teaching in order to solve problems. These skills helped me build the Manitoba Theatre for Young People at the Forks and other challenges in my volunteer life not just my business life.
What are the major issues you would like to stand for and why did you choose these issues?
The major issue I stand for is educating children from the time they are born until they reach their goals in the their choice of careers. I believe we need someplace mothers can go with their young children to socialize and support other children and mothers preferably in schools when possible. I want to see daycares and nursery schools with educational opportunities so children are prepared for Kindergarten and Grade 1. I would like to see support for all children before school, after school whenever it is possible to make sure they have a level playing field to start school and that they always access help when it is needed. This is the only way to make our society strong and our children successful.
Is there anything in particular you would like to change in your school division? In your ward?
I think the Winnipeg School Division provides many programs to help children get the necessary education but we can always improve. When every child reaches their true potential we will have succeeded. I believe we should continually be monitoring and improving all programs and training our staff to be even better at their tasks.
Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?
In the school budget for 2010 while I was chair of the school board we sustained programs and services for students and kept the education property tax levy at the 2009 level through expenditure reductions further cost control measures, accessing the provincial tax incentive grant and the use of reserve funds.
