Congratulations Robin. You have always been a strong advocate for both students and staff and NSD.

Congratulations Robin. I’m glad to hear you are now the chairperson. You have great staff at NSD61 to work for all the students and to help you and the board in making their education your top priority. It’s all your duty having been elected.

Having worked directly with the board, I know that less conferences by the chairperson and having the board members have more interaction with your regions would go a long way in repairing things.

Ultimately it is the board who runs the division and decides where to spend the money and is therefore responsible to the students needs for their education and responsible for the money spent. The NSD61 staff are the worker bees following the board’s desires through the superintendents direction.
I know you will remember to be respectful of the staff too and be a stronger advocate for everyone to work together as a team than previously.

Congratulations and the best of luck.
