Candidate: Teresa Rezansoff, City rep, SD51

Incumbent Teresa Rezansoff is seeking re-election as a city rep to the School District 51 board of education.

Incumbent Teresa Rezansoff is once again running for a seat on the board of School District 51.

My name is Teresa Rezansoff, I am proud to call Grand Forks and the Boundary home.  I graduated from Grand Forks Secondary School and my husband and I raised four wonderful children here.

I truly believe that students must come first, that communities count. A strong, vital public education system is vital to the well being of both our students and the communities in which we live. We have much to be proud of in our school district with engaged students, outstanding teachers, support staff and administrators, supportive parents and community members and dedicated and committed trustees.  It takes the efforts and contributions of all of us to support our students in their learning and growth.

I recognize and believe in the very important connection that being an active community member has to the strength and resiliency of our communities.  My family and I have volunteered with the Community Christmas Dinner.  I spent many happy hours volunteering in the classroom and was an active parent advisory council member.  I spent over ten years as a local and provincial volunteer with BC Special Olympics. Currently I volunteer as a director with Boundary Family Individual Services Society (BFISS) and the Grand Forks Art Gallery.

In addition to local trusteeship, I serve at the provincial level as the President of the BC School Trustees Association, but I am first and foremost a trustee here in school district 51.  My commitment to this district and its students has never wavered or been stronger.

Thank you for the support I have received in my role as a trustee. I care greatly about the children of the Boundary, their success and achievements and respectfully ask for your support to continue to work hard on theirs and your behalf.

Thank you
