Why did you decide to run in the 2014 School Board Election?
As a concerned homeowner and resident in Silver Heights-Booth Ward, I will continue to be committed to keeping the education tax and mill rate among the lowest in Metro Winnipeg by prioritizing responsible spending in spite of virtually zero percent provincial funding over the past 3 years.
I will exercise due diligence in spending and lobby hard for increased provincial funding.
Announcements of a large residential housing development north of Saskatchewan Avenue in the future shows promise for additional education revenues and increased enrollment in our schools.
I believe that the community plays a critical role in the education and development of our future citizens. I see the importance of working together and understanding the needs of our students, parents, educators, seniors and home owners.
What experience will you bring to compliment your role as School Trustee?
I bring 12 years of experience as a School Trustee to my role at the Board table. I also bring many years of experience as a former student, parent, parent councils leader, band parent councils leader and community advocate.
As Chair of the Board I have provided strong leadership this past year.
My past experience with Board leadership has included Vice-Chair,Chair of Finance and Facilities and Chair of Personnel Standing Committees. In addition I have been a working member of all standing committees and as Chair, ex officio member of all.
I am a senior human resources professional with many years of experience working with many diverse organizations big and small. My strength is working with people and organizations to help make them the best that they can be!
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 continue to Champion literacy and numeracy by promoting remedial programs for those students at all levels experiencing difficulties.
I support and advocate for the Metro Winnipeg protocol for Threat Assessment focusing on strategies to help implement a Safe Communities Protocol.
I actively advocate for Special Needs Education , Mental Wellness Services, Language Development, Anti-Bullying Strategies, Career Development Programing, Digital Learning and School Bus Safety for all students.
I recognize the increasing demand for French Immersion in our Division.
I will continue to promote collaborative relationships with St.James Assiniboia Early Childhood Educators.
My overall goal is to listen and support students, parents, grandparents, caregivers, educators, home owners and parent councils with their issues and interests.
What is one thing in particular that you appreciate about the school ward or school division you wish to represent?
The schools of the St. James Assiniboia School Division have a highly respected reputation for providing a high level of quality education and so it is an honor to represent my community and be a part of this organization.
Our strength is in all of the people that either volunteer or work for our Division! They truly make the difference!
Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?
I promise to continue to listen to your issues and provide a strong voice and leadership at the Board table.
