Students come first!
As your incumbent for the last two terms, I will continue to advocate for all of our students.
In this ever changing world, we need to give our students the skills and knowledge to be productive, happy, and responsible citizens for the future and now in our communities. Realizing children’s potential means more than bringing home a good report card. Now, more than ever, we need to develop their confidence to think about others with compassion, to make positive choices that enrich their lives, and to take responsibility for their actions and education.
Your existing Board of Education supports in class and out of classroom opportunities that develop students’ interests and passions. To mention two of a list of many great programs, I am a strong supporter of our Nootka Sound Outdoor Program and Nootka Discovery School. I also feel that the numerous field trips, performing arts, and guest speakers only add to enlighten students to all the endless possibilities the world has to offer.
We need to listen to our youths’ concerns and ideas in venues where they are comfortable. We have to make the connection with our community’s children at such places as the hockey rink, churches, or parks to strengthen their abilities to feel loved and supported.
I will continue to build on healthy relationships with Parents, Staff and the Community. Our strong teachers and caring community are positive strengths for our students. I feel that the citizens of this School District are important role models, whose values and knowledge are underutilized and should be used to benefit the students. I believe respectful, transparent, and collaborative relationships support the needs of our students.
Your Board of Education has significant decisions to ensure individualized student success is attainable, and I believe that working collaboratively and respectfully with all education partnerships can make those successes a reality.
I remain committed to working hard for our students in School District #84 and I respectfully ask for your support in the opportunity to continue to serve you as your Board of Education’s School Trustee in Gold River.
