As a long-time resident of West Vancouver and educator of 30+ years (B.A., M.Ed. Admin., Prime Minister’s Award), I’ve seen our community change along with the needs of our children. Our school district is doing well, but we can do even better – and I’m running on my record of Experience and Dedication to Build a Brighter Future For Our Children and Grandchildren. To accomplish that, my platform is built on Authenticity, Balance, and Community – the building blocks of success.
A: By encouraging Authentic learning experiences, we empower our children to form the habits they need for success beyond school. I am committed to encouraging our youth to reflect the values of personal responsibility, leadership, and positive self-esteem.
B: With upcoming teachers’ contract negotiations and budgets increasingly strained, working together has never been more important. I will collaborate with elected officials, parents, and educators to find the right Balance in achieving a harmonious school district.
C: A strong Community is built on the foundation of an excellent education system, and an excellent school system requires an engaged community. I will work with parents, educators, and community members to define and help realize an even brighter future for our children.
