My Frame of Reference

My approach to public education is framed by my experience as a parent as well as that of a public servant. My wife, a kindergarten teacher, helps me to understand the realities of providing an education to a classroom of students.  Most significantly, our  children attend middle and secondary school in SD61.  Decisions made by the Board have a real and direct impact on them, so you can be confident that I will give my full attention to every matter.
