I care passionately about education being a solution to so many of our worlds’ problems i.e.poverty, climate change, tolerance. I would like to be a part of providing the governance for for that progressive education to happen.
Recruitment. I think getting the teachers’ wage at least in parity with the other provinces would be a good start!
Governance and policy creating and letting the superintendent use those policies to do their job!
Yes I do. It’s a part of our students learning process and they need to feel safe and supported and that can happen in a school environment.
I will advocate for the rural schools report that was issued earlier this spring and I know the current Minister of Education is a supporter of rural schools and knows how important they are to keeping communities intact! I visited Giscome Elementary School recently and the community of Willow River and Giscome are so proud of their school! The multi use of the school as a community centre is brilliant!
To see more communication regarding the school district’s activities. It has become almost non-existent! I found it very sad that there was very little published or reported on regarding our high school graduations! It should be SD 57’s celebration of our students achieving 13 years of public school!
I bring a lifetime of being involved in education. I was part of a committee in Vancouver that worked to change the outdated PTA to PAC because we knew how important it was to give parents more input into their children’s education.
Increase the wages for teachers! They currently are paid the lowest wages in the country!
Work with my fellow trustees and administration to advocate to the government to provide us with the funds needed.
