Hello community of Ajax, I am a passionate Educator as well as a facilitator for mental health support programs. A resident of Ajax for 15+ years seeing its beautiful expansion.
I have extensive knowledge and experience working with children in a variety of settings including schools, youth residential treatment facilities, and the Learning Disability Association of Toronto, supplying youth with academic and social support. Most recently, as a behavioral therapist with specialized training in developmental learning disorders.
I hold a Master of Education in Social Equity Studies in Education from the University of Toronto. My experience and understanding of Equity in education are why I am a strong advocate. I believe that equitable and high-quality education is the right of all students who are the future leaders of our great city.
While the COVID-19 pandemic has allowed us as a community to value our connections and build bridges across different areas, gaps still need to be fixed in our education sector.
Going into the new school term in a post-pandemic climate, we can expect a shift in the well-being of students, our teaching staff, and teaching models. It is not enough to expand our communication. We need to make room:
Make room for the variety of experiences and knowledge from diverse members of the community
Make room to grow our compassion and thoughtfully consider our present changes and the impact these changes will have on our schools. It will take a new set of eyes, new skills, and creative approaches to handle them effectively
Make room for growth -this looks like, more support for all students, and educational professionals, learning new skills, and collaborating more with the community at large
As your advocate, I will collaborate with you to make sure your views and opinions are heard. I will bring my skills, experience, and creative approaches to challenges.
As your elected candidate, I will advocate for the requirement of sufficient resources to make inclusive and high-quality education a key priority.
I thank you in advance for your support on October 17th-24th.
I will be your voice of change. I'm ready to lead.
