For Public School Trustee
City of Red Deer
I am an entrepreneur, a director of the Central Alberta Skateboard Association, as well as a member of the Piper Creek Optimist Club who raises money for youth initiatives in Red Deer. I have two children who attend schools in the Red Deer Public School District and feel that our schools need strong leadership, a clear vision for the future of education, and the need to bring schools and their surrounding communities together.
|Curriculum is Key||I studied at RDC, UofC, and Uppsala University in Sweden, and know that we all learn in unique ways. I was stunned by the proposed curriculum changes and feel it is a step back in the progress we have made in making our education system better.|
|Fiscal Responsibility||My formal education, experience in Non-Profits, and running businesses, allows me to see the big picture and work within a budget to make decisions that will ensure that resources are allocated in a way that will be the most effective.|
|Representation, Wellness & Inclusivity||Educators are facing complex issues with dwindling resources. We need to find ways to make sure that students get the supports they need to be successful while encouraging diverse voices and making sure they are included and safe|
|Community Engagement||RDPSD is critical in our community. My Optimist Club is always asked for support for lunches, programming, and other needs not met by funding from government. I will engage service groups, social programs, and others to enhance student success|
