I was first elected as a school commissioner in 2007 with over 65% of the vote. In 2014 I was re-elected defeating three other candidates. I represent Ward 2, which now includes all of NDG and Montreal West. It is also the district where I have lived for most of my life.
Ensuring the best future for our children is my goal. I have devoted my entire career to education, as a teacher and School Principal at both the Elementary and High School levels and presently as School Commissioner. I believe in conducting myself with integrity, transparency, accountability and devotion.
To keep up-to-date with issues in my Ward, I regularly attend meetings of school Governing Boards and other parent bodies and also attend major school and school board events.
As a School Commissioner, I have been a dedicated member of many school board committees contributing many hours of work per week. I am proud to have an almost perfect record of attendance at meetings of the Council of Commissioners and Committee meetings.
Since 2007 I have been or am a member of the following school board committees:
¨ Chair, Audit Committee
¨ Chair, Finance and Legislation Committee
¨ Chair, Governance and Ethics Committee
¨ Co-Chair, School Transportation Advisory Committee
¨ Vice Chair, Education Committee
