My name is Dani Robinson and I am super excited to be running for Simcoe County District School Board trustee for Barrie Wards 7, 8, 9, and 10.

I have two amazing children; my daughter is in Grade 8 at Holly Meadows and my son is in Grade 10 at Bear Creek. I have always been an active volunteer in my children’s school including chairing the parent school council for several years. I won volunteer of the year for 2017-18 and I was also offered a position as a supply education assistant for Simcoe County District School Board.

I now work for Canada Homestay Network as a relationship manager. I absolutely love working with our local children as well as the international students. I genuinely care for the well-being of all of our children.

I have built many different relationships over the years with students, administration, teachers, all school staff members and parents in the community. These relationships are extremely important to me as they have helped me realize the importance of advocating and being the voice for our youth.

I have seen first hand many of our youth struggling with mental health issues, especially since COVID. I am extremely committed to ensuring students get more help and support within the schools. I also feel very passionate about getting more support for the special education department as well as supporting changes to the transportation issues that is continuously brought up by parents and students in our community.

Although, my experience from volunteering and working in various schools in Simcoe County will help me be the best school board trustee I can be, I feel my passion, energy, determination, and heart will make me stand out the most. I promise to be available to listen and actively hear all your questions and concerns. I will be your voice by bringing them forward to the school board, no matter how big or small your concern is!

Our students in Simcoe County are the future and we need to make sure we come together as a community to set our children up for success! I would be honoured to help our children get to where they need to be successfully by representing Wards 7, 8, 9, and 10 as school board trustee.

Thank you for your consideration and support.
