Cecile Marcino's been a trustee for 18 years now with the Keewatin-Patricia District School Board, but she still enjoys visiting the schools and the kids.
"My thought would be looking at what the kids need to reach out to the trades, so they have what they need to help out in their communities," she said.
The trustee is also the vice chair of the board, and she's anxiously awaiting word from Queen's Park, on how the new government will approach education.
"Can we work together to help these kids be able to have a career and a life, set their life in a positive way," she added.
Marcino recalls the previous Tory government, and she hopes to retain or improve supports and accommodations for those with special needs, including those from First Nations and the Far North.
Although it's not always high on the agenda, Marcino says music is an important issue for the classroom.
"I would love to get music back into our elementary schools, because I really believe our kids thrive through music," she said.
