A Message from Louise

“We need to prepare our students to be able to think forward and give them the tools needed to be successful in an ever-changing world. At Trillium Lakelands District School Board we work hard to provide those tools in a safe and caring learning community where we truly are better together.

My personal experiences have given me the tools to become a valuable member of the Board and becoming immersed in many committees provides me with the knowledge to lead both Trillium Lakelands District School Board and the OPSBA Central East Region. I am able to advocate for students and help to provide them with what they need to succeed. I believe that the engagement of students, parents, staff, trustees, and the community is the key to providing our students with the best education possible.

As a trustee I am on the road most days of the week and away from my family many nights and weekends. I believe the work I do helps to provide our students with the best education today. It is a pleasure to support trustees within TLDSB, OPSBA Central East Region, and across the province.”

Background
