I look forward to another two years of dedicated work representing Alberta teachers and to celebrating the 100th anniversary of our teaching association. As a district representative, I bring forward the voice of rural teachers, work for stable funding of public education, engage in open and effective dialogue, and advocate for the profession of teaching.
We teach in an increasingly complex and intensified society; therefore, it is imperative that we face educational issues as a united association. Teachers value their students — the future — and understand clearly that it is public education that will best serve that future.
Thank you to teachers from Aspen View, Battle River, Greater St. Paul, Lakeland Catholic, Northern Lights and Park Plains East for your inspiration, support and insight. It is an honour and a delight to represent and serve you.
My teaching experience spans four decades and four divisions. I have been dedicated to our Association since my first year of teaching. I currently teach grade 9–12 social studies and religion in Provost.
