Here is what members of our community are saying about Theresa...

"I am delighted that Theresa is running for re-election as the Bay Ward Public School Board Trustee. She is a hard-worker, committed and persevering. She will continue to be wonderful asset to our school board and to our community."
Monia Mazigh, Ph.D
Author and mother of two school aged children

I am very pleased to endorse Theresa as a candidate for re-election as the Public School Trustee in Bay Ward. I worked closely with her on the Board of Directors of Alterna Savings.  Theresa has devoted the same time and energy required to help make our Public Schools the best they can be. She was always well prepared for our meetings and was an attentive listener to others’ perspectives as she helped develop policies for the Credit Union. She asked insightful questions throughout our budgeting process as we made the tough financial choices required to meet our goals.  She has carried this pattern forward as a School Trustee. I am confident Theresa will continue to bring solid values and high energy to the job, aimed at helping all students achieve their potential in our public schools.
