My Commitment to Ward H

It has been my honour to serve families of Ward H since 2013. I am proud of the work we have done together for the success of all kids. While much has been accomplished, there is much work to be done. I continue to hear from you the need for more schools and alternative program options and the need for a different kind of school design, one with wrap-around services to support families and community. We also need to keep our focus on ensuring students have the appropriate supports and resources in the classroom to succeed.

I will continue to be a strong advocate on the school board for our community.

Through coffee meetings, attending community events and many conversations with you over the last four years, I understand the needs of our community and know how best to navigate through the challenges ahead. I am committed to ensuring that every student at Edmonton Public Schools thrives in their educational journey from the early years to high school and beyond.
