I have been instrumental in moving School District 61 in a progressive direction, and I need your mandate to continue. I am a values-driven leader committed to reconciliation, equity, inclusion, collaboration, and community.
Public schools are for everyone, and each student in our schools should feel an authentic sense of belonging. When students don’t feel like they can be themselves, their learning is deeply impacted. I am passionate about creating a school district where each student is empowered to reach their full potential, and where teachers and staff have the tools they need to make that happen. I will stand up against the chronic underfunding of public education, and be an unwavering voice for improved supports for students.
SD61 is already a leader in its approach to SOGI, and I believe we are well positioned to be a leader in other areas including childcare, lands management, and Indigenizing curriculum. Located in the Capital City, we have the opportunity to showcase best practices and innovation to the provincial government, and I want to be a part of a Board that is willing to go the distance to show what a progressive School District can accomplish for students, families, staff, and our communities.
