Why did you decide to run in the 2014 School Board Election?
I decided to run for school trustee after reaching out to the school division about an issue my special needs son was facing over the last few years, and getting the run around. I was disappointed that my trustees wouldn't even take the time to return my calls and address my concerns. I took to social media and discovered many other parents have had the same problem. That's when I decided to run for trustee and encourage other parents to do the same. As tax payers and parents I strongly believe we deserve a voice in policies that directly effect our children.
What experience will you bring to compliment your role as School Trustee?
The main advantage for experience I have over the other candidates is actually having school aged children. When I went back to university last year, it was extremely different from the last time I attended classes in 2002. Technology has enriched the learning experience so much, and is a vital tool! I also bring front line experience to the table as I currently work with special needs children in another school. In addition I have also worked for Winnipeg Regional Health Authority for 12 years.
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 would like to see breakfast clubs in all our schools. I have seen first hand the difference they can make and believe in the program so much, I'm going to give part of any honorarium I receive to this program.
I will also stand for special education programs that are student focused, strict anti bully policy, more teacher to parent communication,free preschool, accountability from administrators, better bussing,modern technology in all classes, ensuring sensory rooms aren't used in a abusive manor and no tax increases.
What is one thing in particular that you appreciate about the school ward or school division you wish to represent?
Our school division has some of the best teachers!
Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?
If I am elected I am going to put the TRUST back in trustee!
