Area C school trustee candidate: Ian Hargreaves

Comox Valley Regional District: Hargreaves, Ian - Trustee candidate

  • Oct. 22, 2014 2:00 p.m.

I am a retired teacher who has lived in the Comox Valley for 31 years and taught primarily at Ecole Puntledge Park and Miracle Beach Elementary. During that time I got to know both communities well and feel that  I will be able to make a positive contribution to the School Board on their behalf. I believe my experience participating in numerous community events, as well as a number of instructional leadership roles at the provincial, district and school level will be a valuable asset. As an educator, I came to the district as a special education specialist and was involved in the development of the province’s Special Education Core Curriculum as well as other curriculum areas. I participated in the integration of special needs students, the developed Social Justice and Diversity materials and was a social justice associate for the British Columbia Teacher’s Federation.

In addition to my classroom teaching, I participated in the development of a local First Nations curriculum package, The Legend of Queneesh, served on numerous district committees and as a “computer helping teacher” supported the development and implementation of district and school strategies for the integration of technology.

Before coming to the Comox Valley I worked for a number of years in the private sector on the development and management of programs for handicapped children and adults. I have long had a deep, abiding passion for education and know I can make a positive contribution to the work of the board.

Ian can be reached via email at bushido8@shaw.ca throughout the campaign.
