Change is something we see happening every day in our lives.

Rose Zitko

Change is something we see happening every day in our lives.

We may have seen it in our workplace, at home and most definitely in our schools.  We have seen how technology is changing the way we teach and the way our children learn.

The idea of personalized learning is being talked about in more and more conversations. I would like to see parents become more aware of how things are changing for their children.

As this is my first time as a school trustee, I am very excited to be a part of these changes, and for myself to be a source of information for parents to learn and understand about the decisions being made in our district.

Living in Beaverdell for most of my life, I feel I will bring a greater understanding of what education in small communities is like.

With that type of understanding, I feel I can represent our small schools and work hard to help make the changes necessary for all the students in our communities now and in the future.

– Rose Zitko has been elected as trustee for Area E – Kettle Valley North by acclamation
