I live with my husband and my two children in Ward 11, where both of my children attend CBE schools.
I have been the CBE Trustee for Wards 11 & 13 since April 2015. I have learned a lot from you since then. Students, teachers, parents, and community members teach me so much. Thank you. You have challenged me, you have inspired me, and you have ignited a burning in my belly. Because of you, I gladly put my heart and soul into fighting for a strong, vibrant, and well-funded public education system.
I feel like I have just scratched the surface of what I want to do as your representative. I have much to add to the conversation, and much much more to learn. I would like to continue to be your elected representative at the CBE, and continue to be your voice at the table for education in Calgary.
