As district representative, I look forward to meeting the teachers of Central South and sharing our views at Provincial Executive Council. I will also endeavour to keep our teachers informed of the business of the ATA so we can all be active participants in our profession. We face many challenges as we continue to provide the best teaching and learning environments to meet the increasingly complex needs of our students. I will do my best to represent our teachers and our profession.
I am currently a learning assistance teacher and special education teacher at Hunting Hills High School in Red Deer. I have been a teacher for almost 30 years and have been fortunate to have a wide variety of teaching opportunities across the province. I am proud to be a teacher.
I am currently the vice-president and local political engagement officer for Red Deer Public. I also am involved in our local Economic Planning Committee and Negotiating Subcommittee. At a provincial level, I have participated in many ARA’s, Summer Conferences and recently began involvement in the Professional Conduct Committee. In the past, I have been a local communications officer and held several positions on teachers’ conventions committees.
Finally, I’d like to thank Léo Richer for all the work he has done on behalf of the teachers of Central South and for his support as I move forward in this new and challenging role.
