I am proud to be a public school trustee representing Ward 11, St Paul’s.
I am an experienced trustee. I bring a track record of strengthening public education. I build relationships.
I have negotiated improvements to local schools including the creative rebuilding of North Toronto Collegiate Institute, and facilities at many of the elementary schools in the Ward; secured more funding for literacy centres, anti-bullying, early learning, nutrition and parenting programs; and championed ground breaking policies on community involvement, Eco-Schools, equity, literacy, academic excellence, school safety and healthy schools.
Most recently I am proud of our work on our Student Mental Health and Wellness, tangible supports for improving Math, promotion of the Skilled Trades in schools across the TDSB and the Long-Term Program and Accommodation Strategy.
I have a solid reputation as an innovative thinker, problem-solver and consensus builder. I demonstrate integrity.
Most importantly, I am a parent of three graduates of Toronto’s public schools and was active in creating responsive and vibrant schools as a volunteer in their schools.
But there is more to do … not every student is thriving… I want to continue representing St Paul’s at the TDSB to accomplish these priorities:
A vote for me means you’ll get someone with a “can do” attitude who prioritizes student academic success and mental well-being.
I have a track record of being able to involve students, parents, educators and community members in seeking solutions to local issues, and where necessary, build consensus amongst board colleagues to make it happen.
We have great schools in St Paul’s and I look forward to continuing to support them as your elected public school trustee over the next 4 years. .
With your vote, I can continue to ensure the voices of students, parents, educators and community members are reflected in the leadership, management and operation of our public schools and help via funding such as E Transfer Payday Loans Canada 24/7 realize our community’s goals – thriving, effective public schools that respect diversity, support academic achievement and well-being for all and give each and every child the ability to reach his or her full potential.
