A Fresh, Progressive, and Community-Driven Voice for Zone 3 OCDSB Trustee
I’m running for OCDSB trustee because this is an important moment for schools in our community. Like many parents, students, and community members, I am concerned about the future of public education in our province following the most recent provincial election.
We know that over the next four years the board will be faced with increasing budget cuts pushed by a provincial government committed to so-called austerity and conservative approaches to education. We need forward-thinking, creative, and community-driven trustees to address the challenges that have arisen under this conservative provincial government.
I believe that having a strong board of trustees with shared progressive values can help make sure that the students who need the most support will not be ignored.
Now, more than ever, we need school board trustees who are committed to ensuring that human rights, equity and inclusion remain priorities in every school board decision. This is why I am running for trustee in Zone 3. I believe Zone 3 is ready for a trustee who believes firmly in the urgency to incorporate anti-racist, human rights-focused, and student-centred approaches into all OCDSB policies.
I am confident in my ability to contribute to progressive, effective, and well-researched decision-making as trustee. As a social justice educator and advocate, I am committed to ensuring that every investment into our schools maintains the principles of equity, accessibility, inclusion, and student well-being. In my view, focusing on student success means more than test scores. It means creating school communities where all students feel safe, well-supported, respected, and heard.
