ABOUT ME

Leticia%20191b%20Transparent_edited.png

BACKGROUND

I have a nursing and an education degree, and a masters in Leadership, and have worked as a school teacher for many years, instructing children from pre-school to junior high. Currently, I teach students in the University of Alberta’s education degree program at Faculty St. Jean, the university’s French campus.

COMMUNITY BUILDING

Over the last decade, I have been actively involved as an executive in a number of non-profit organizations, advocating for language learning and women in leadership. Being the voice of my community is part of my daily life, and I have used that voice to co-host a weekly radio show on a local Francophone community radio station (Radio Cité). My voice and actions align with the principles of equity, diversity and inclusion. My goal is to build community and advocate for ways to bring more people into the democratic process. My aim in running for school trustee is to bring new and fresh ideas for the betterment of our school district.

I STAND FOR
  • Advocacy

  • Transparency

  • Accountability

  • Diversity

  • Inclusion

MY TOP 4 PRIORITIES
  • To support the adoption of a school calendar that reflects EPSB’s values of diversity and inclusion.

  • To be a strong voice for the school community through all levels of government.

  • To encourage and strengthen the vital and ongoing process of Truth and Reconciliation within the school board. 

  • To support all three professional practice standards developed by the former provincial government and key community partners: Superintendent Leadership Quality Standard, Leadership Quality Standard, and Teaching Quality Standard.
