City of Peterborough
My three sons are proud KPR graduates, and their experiences and successes have bolstered my strong belief in public education. I bring a business world perspective to the board table and despite my years of experience as a trustee, I continue to appreciate the governance role, proudly representing constituents at the board table and recognizing that decisions need to be made in the best interests of all KPR students.
I believe that schools are much more than bricks and mortar, they are about the lifelong memories and experiences created for our students, which enable them to achieve many kinds of success.
I am a strong supporter of special education, parent involvement and school councils. I am specifically concerned for children with special needs. We need to remind ourselves, with the proper tools all children can learn and be successful.
I am very proud of the accomplishments of our board, and particularly of our students, however we must never settle for the status quo, but instead consistently seek out opportunities for improvement.
I welcome input from parents and community members in order to better serve the needs of students of Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board.
