School District 70: Gaelle Freye - Trustee candidate

  • Oct. 30, 2014 7:00 a.m.

Hello, I am Gaelle Frey and I am running in the 2014 election as an incumbent for school board trustee. I was elected in a by-election in 2013. The biggest lesson that I have learned as a trustee is that it’s our job to help each individual student achieve their educational success. This is done by focusing on putting students first which is a valuable lesson I have been taught from my fellow trustees, administrators and staff within this district.

I have been a proud resident of the Alberni Valley since 2000 when my husband and I relocated from Nanaimo to raise our family. I am a mother to three wonderful children ages 13, 10 and 8 who are all attending school in the Valley. I have gained invaluable first-hand experience of SD70 through volunteering my time to organizations designed to enhance the learning environment within our community.

As a re-elected trustee I will continue to help develop an environment that breeds success for each and every student. I believe a key in this equation is to build successful relationships within the school district with administration and staff to achieve a solidarity.

In this we will be able to nurture students on a individual level.Through working together with administration and staff with a direct focus on a student first agenda we will accomplish this task. As trustee I will continue to foster the idea that students all have their own individual ways of learning. I will collaborate with other trustees to empower administrators and staff to accomplish greater success in the classroom.  I will continue to think outside the box by exploring other avenues for all students to achieve their objectives.
