Supporting Teachers

Elk Island Public Schools exists to educate our children.  Our teachers carry the bulk of the responsibility.

I believe they need to be supported:

  • with up-to-date technology;
  • in classroom discipline;
  • with opportunities for professional development;
  • with classroom supports, including educational assistants as well as specialists for students with special needs;
  • with open dialogue with Trustees through committees such as the Teacher/Board Consultation Committee;
  • with less movement of administrators;
  • by allowing them, when possible, to teach the subject and grade they feel comfortable teaching;
  • by providing them with adequate preparation time.
