GREATEST SUCCESS: “My greatest professional success has been my work as a Grade 7 teacher in Quesnel.” FUN FACT: “I have four adorable grandchildren, with No. 5 on the way!” BIGGEST LESSON: “The importance of not giving up on issues of importance. As a union we went to court four times to win back student learning conditions and teacher working conditions over the course of 15 years.”
