About Nathan Ip

Get to know me

I am an inclusive education advocate, a long-time community leader and dedicated volunteer. For me, the drive to serve as Trustee comes from working hand-in-hand with families who have felt the effects of changing policies and hard budget choices. Every day I work with families of youth with disabilities to help find opportunities for their future. I’ve also spent years working to give a voice to youth at-risk. It’s so clear that for these kids, the course of their education and of their lives has been really impacted by some of those “system” decisions about what supports are available, and how to include them in the classroom.

I think I can make a difference by making sure that when we’re hearing the voices of the people in the community who are going to be affected by our decisions. If elected, I will bring new ideas, new partnerships, and a truly collaborative approach to the role of Trustee.
