I will be the biggest advocate for

-Ensuring greater support for vulnerable and special needs students.
Often, these students are placed into classrooms at ever increasing numbers with little support. I will make sure that his issue is immediately addressed.

-Ensuring all groups associated with running our schools have an equal voice at the Trustee Table. This includes: COPAC, COTA, CUPE and ADMINISTRATION.

-Overcrowding issues: There still exists a chronic overcrowding issue in Glenmore that needs to be immediately addressed as well as the 20 year delay in getting the new Rutland Middle School built.

-Ensuring the resources and budget allocations are targeted and always for the benefit of our students and their learning environment.
