Teresa has been an active member of many school and parish committees. Prior to her tenure as a Catholic School Board Trustee, Teresa ran her own successful business providing early educational programming for young children. She acquired additional education, professional skills, and experience working for a number of institutions and volunteering her time in community projects. She has over twenty years of administrative experience which has contributed to her effectiveness as a School Board Trustee.
Teresa is a practising Catholic who models the faith in both her family life and the life of the community. She and her family are active parishioners.
Her strong people skills are an asset to her in dealing with her constituents. She sees her position as a unique opportunity to nurture those values essential to our Catholic School System. She strives to embed these values in the educational experience of our students, as well as in the Board's outreach to the broader community at large. This has been especially important in her work on the Race Relations Committee.
