Increasing allocations to allow for adequate learning supports, improving protection measures and programs for at-risk youth, and providing trustee transparency and accountable spending are what I believe to be the top priorities for our district.
As a mother with two young sons in the public school system, I have had the privilege of seeing first hand the difference that teachers and EAs have made in their lives, and despite our positive experience, I am very aware that many educators within our system lack the necessary support in their classrooms to make Delta the best place to learn for our children. Delta is a diverse city with many ethnic, religious and cultural minorities represented, and our schools are full of kids who need to feel loved, accepted, and safe. Based on experience, Delta teachers are some of the most engaged and inclusive educators anywhere, but we need to ensure that they themselves have the training, resources, and support needed to manage a diverse classroom and provide a quality education for our students without being overburdened. Fresh voices, unbeholden opinions and on-the-ground insights are crucial to the Delta School Board if we want to see the real change that is possible. The future is bright!
