Position on the board and years on the board: President, on the board for 5 years (I think?)
Favorite thing about Glenora: My favourite thing about GCCS is the amazing educators and the feeling of family at the centre. My children loved coming to daycare (and now OSC) and I love knowing that they are having fun, learning and that they are a part of this big wonderful family. And of course, Noriko's cooking.
Fun Fact: I decided to join the Board of Directors because I have a background in Early Childhood Development, so I was interested in learning more about how the centre operates, and also because this is the place my children were spending most of their time and I was important to me to be as involved as possible. And, it's been a great opportunity to learn, grow and make some great friends.
