My Commitment to Wards Six and Eleven

My commitment to you as Trustee, is to represent and support all parents, guardians, students and taxpayers to the best of my ability. My goal is to deliver the best Catholic Education possible in Ontario.  

As a member of our Catholic community, I will continue to meet the needs of Ward 6 and 11 by addressing the needs of our students in all of our schools. Students and staff in our schools must have the tools to deliver leading edge curriculum and the teachings of our Catholic Faith. Education must include support of the Church, school and home.
With your support I will continue working to make our Catholic Education system the envy of Ontario.
 
The following is representative of my commitment to you:
-Continue working towards ensuring that our children have at the early grades a curriculum with the essentials to ensure that by     the time they get to high school they have the skills they need to succeed in life
- Continue to work towards protecting and supporting Catholic education 
- Continue to meet and address all comments and suggestions from parents/ guardians and students
- Continue to demand that the provincial government ensure fair funding in the areas of textbooks, technology, special education, and upgrade older schools
- Continue to believe in the importance of education, the benefits of parental involvement, the desire for high standards and the need for greater accountability
- Continue to attend school council meetings, graduations and events at all schools

It is an honour to have served you as Trustee for two terms. I have the experience, the energy and commitment to continue serving your interests. You can count on me as an effective voice at the board table.
 
Thank you.

Objectives

My main objective as your Trustee has been to represent you to the best of my ability and to provide an excellent Catholic Education for your children.  I will continue to work towards protecting our rights to Catholic Education. 

 All students must have the opportunity to learn our Catholic Faith so they may grow and live in the image of Christ regardless of their circumstances. Parents/guardians must continue to be involved in their child’s education. The student must have a solid education for their future and it is vital that education be a working relationship between the home, school, and Church.

I respectfully ask for your support to continue to serve you and build on my years of experience as your Trustee.
I have the knowledge, dedication and experience to stand up for Catholic Education. I pride myself for the relationships I have developed with my colleagues on the Board and administration to better address the needs of our community.

I will continue to be responsible with the taxpayer dollars entrusted to us by the Province and will work towards maintaining a balanced budget. 

It is by working together that we can shape Catholic Education for today and the future.
