Why should I vote for you?

I believe all children want to learn because the desires to learn and to be able to learn are part of our human condition. I will keep this learner centred philosophy at the heart of the process. My election is a natural extension of my commitment to learners and lifelong learning.

 

Your main goal if elected?

If elected, I will work to balance the needs of students with all competing interests. My mission will be to advocate for all students and whatever is necessary for their development and success. To do this I will always ask and work to resolve, “How does this benefit the student?”
