Welcome to this website – newly updated! It has been 10 months since being elected Trustee for Ward C on the Edmonton Public School Board and these months have been the highest honour of my life and have also presented the steepest learning curve as well. It has been constantly humbling to learn more about the inspiring work being done by teachers and staff within EPSB and within the sector of public education in the province. I’ve had a chance to advocate for mental health funding to schools, for schools as community hubs, and to work on the board’s infrastructure committee. I’ve had the pleasure of visiting schools, attending parent council meetings, conducting results reviews with schools, attending community events, and meeting with constituents and stakeholder groups in education.
All of this to say that it’s been busy! But summer has offered a chance to work on this website as a way to communicate directly with constituents and those interested in the work of the Edmonton Public School Board. Please have a look around, and you’ll see:
- An event page. While Trustees are busy most days with meetings/events within the district, with stakeholders, government, or constituents, there are also many public events where you can meet your Trustee. This calendar hosts important school calendar dates as well as board meetings and public events attended by myself and other Trustees.
- A blog. A chance to keep up to date on what is coming up at board meetings, and hear from your Trustee directly. My hope is to provide background information for topics that our board routinely discusses.
- Information about Ward C. Are you aware of what schools and neighbourhoods are included in Ward C? It might be more than you think. Check out the link to an interactive map of the ward.
And, stay tuned for other features that might be coming soon, or provide your feedback on what you would like to see included on a website for your elected representative on the Edmonton Public School Board.
