Why Are You Running for School Trustee?

Boozhoo indinawemaaganidog (hello my relations) I am running for School Board Trustee for I have an invested interest for the future of our education in Brandon.  Both in the classroom and across our division.  As a parent of two secondary school graduates from Crocus Plains and with one still in Grade 8, I have been involved with our school system for a number of years as an Indigenous educator and community member.

I am seeking re-election to the Board with a clear vision of moving our Divion forward in supporting the Continuous Improvement Plan within all areas of development, the ongoing supports for Truth and Reconciliation in our Classrooms and Division, and continuing to lobby our efforts as a Board in securing the supports both provincially and through other avenues of education and administrative funding.

My current experiences include being a Board Member to the Brandon Friendship Centre, Board Member to the Manitoba Indigenous Tourism Association and Advisor to the International Peace Gardens Board of Directors Indigenous Relations Committee along with being the current Vice Chair and Member of the Board of Trustees with the Brandon School Division.
