In honour of Moms, Dads, and all parents and caregivers everywhere, I am announcing my intention to run for the position of School Board Trustee for the Dufferin Peel Catholic District School Board.
I am passionate about education and about providing children the supports and resources they require in order to achieve their full potential. As a former educator, author, an emergency supply teacher, a Parent Advisory Council Chairperson, Parish Rep, Secretary and classroom volunteer, I will bring a fresh perspective to the table. A perspective that offers a true “feet on the floor” approach respecting all sides of the educational experience – Teachers, Administration, Parents, Parish and of course, children!
I believe most of all in open communication and timely, courteous and respectful dialogue. The relationship between School, Parish and Families is critically important and mutually interdependent. I am running as a candidate who will continue to foster and promote this wonderful relationship, through open communication and by representing the interests of all, to the very best of my ability.
