School District 85: Jack, David — Trustee candidate, Area 3

David Jack

Just a little over three years ago I became a father of two magnificent kids, when my wife Heather and I adopted our sons. In that short time my boys have attended four different school districts. With the purchase of our first house our family has picked the North Island as our community, our home.

I have expertise in problem solving, and thinking outside the box. Most of my experience was gained in forest research working in academia, government, industry, and as a consultant. During my graduate work, I worked for six years as a teaching assistant at UBC and understand the skill sets required to succeed in post-secondary education, be it a skilled trade or PhD. I know that the foundations to succeed must be developed early. I understand the influence that a high-stress home life can have on a child’s learning.

I feel it is time to move forward; enough of the status quo. I will use my expertise to continue the efforts to try to restore funding. It is time to be creative with what we do have and re-build our children’s education with innovation, community and the help of parents. It is time to look outside the North Island and emulate success stories.

As a School Trustee I will use my unique background to make constructive changes to the North Island School District that will result in developing a world-class education program for my two sons, your children, and the North Island Community.
