1. As one of the 1st Year reps for CESA this year, I've
gained a lot of experience representing Con Ed
students. I loved working with CESA this year and I
would love to be able to continue planning and
assisting with events and fundraising. Because of
my involvement with CESA, I know and understand
how to best represent you and how to make Con Ed
events better for you.
2. Throughout the year, I've been very involved in the
Trent community. I have participated in leadership
events, open houses, and more. I had so much fun
working with all the different organizations around
campus, and I've learned so much from them.
3. I'm approachable and open to ideas! I love the Con Ed
program and I want to make it better than ever. I'd
love to have your ideas for events, social nights,
professional development, and more. I want to hear
your ideas, bring them forward and make this a
great year for Con Ed students!
Through the four years of high school, I was President of my
schools’ Athletic Council and active member of our
President’s Council. These positions gave me experience
working in a team to create an inclusive, fun-filled
environment as we planned school-wide and communitywide events for everyone to participate in.
In the last two years of high school, I contributed over 600
hours of my time to volunteer community service because I
became dedicated to my volunteer positions and because I
enjoyed the work I was doing. I will put in the exact amount
of commitment and perseverance to being the CESA 2nd
During my first year, here at Trent, I have attended a vast
majority of CESA events, Trent events, and Peterborough
community events. These include To B.Ed and Beyond, QCE
2014, Con-Ed Formal, ISW 2013/2014, Family Literacy Day,
and many more. By attending these events I have gained
insight to what kind of community surrounds us and will
strive to provide opportunities for everyone to become
involved in CESA, Trent, and Peterborough events.
In the past I have been very involved in my high school's
drama festival every year. I was Vice President one
year and President for the next and I also helped to
direct the plays giving me excellent leadership
I am currently tutoring with the Learning Disabilities
Association of Peterborough for a grade six who
needs help in math. I am very understanding and
easy to talk to so your ideas and questions will
always be considered.
Thirdly, I love Con-Ed! I want to make our program the
best it can possibly be. I'd like to do whatever I can
to make our next two years the best years.
Team and leadership positions: Before starting at Trent, I played on many rep
hockey and soccer teams as a teenager. On these teams, the players,
coaches, officials, and parents always saw me as a leader through my
demeanor inside and outside the realm of sport. These experiences have
allowed me to learn many lessons and apply them through various positions,
such as student council, which would be an asset for a position such as this.
My comfort level in being seen as a leader in all of my positions previously
held would help me in decision making, speaking, and relations with
students and staff.
2) CESA knowledge: Through my almost three years here at Trent, I have helped
with and attended multiple CESA events. Through these experiences, I have
made many connections, learned new aspects of teaching practices, the
program, and the student body as a whole. The experience that I possess
from simply helping and attending these events could be drawn from when
making decisions in relation to events and development. I have learned a lot
through CESA and I would really enjoy being able to continue to connect with
others and myself through a position such as this.
3) Outgoing and friendly personality: My outgoing personality would be beneficial
when speaking and communicating with others about what they expect of
myself as a CESA representative and from CESA as a whole. My personality
allows me to be myself when speaking to others, those of whom I know as
well as complete strangers. I believe this will help tremendously when trying
to make connections with others and when trying to make others feel
comfortable talking to me.
1. I believe that I possess the necessary skills needed to effectively
communicate with the Concurrent Education Student body. Social
media outlets such as Facebook and Twitter are essential tools in
capturing people’s attention today and these outlets are things I
use daily and enjoy very much. Who would have thought my love
(and so called addiction) for social media would be put to a good
use for something other than procrastination!
2. This past school year I have served as a Member At Large on CESA
and was a part of the very first Con-Ed ISW day. I have loved every
minute of this involvement and next year I am hoping to gain more
responsibility and take on a new role within CESA. The position of
Communications Coordinator is the perfect solution for this! I will
be very committed and dedicated to the position and ensure that
the role is fulfilled in the best way possible!
3. Getting involved is one of the best ways to make connections while in
university and in the Concurrent Education program there are
many events to get students involved. Through Email, Facebook,
Twitter and other media outlets I will promote all upcoming events
and ensure that every student in the program is up to date and
aware of all the exciting Concurrent Education news, because after
all, it’s better in B.Ed.!!
-I'm always available and reachable as well as organized to ensure people get the latest
information and are constantly up to date.
-I'm very approachable and eager to become involved as well as get other involved by
giving them all the opportunities needed to do so.
-I use many social media platforms already so I will be able to get information across in
an exciting and energetic way!
I am currently a member at large on CESA and am familiar with the general
responsibilities (attending meetings, writing Red Apple Articles, and attending CESA
I am organized and can communicate effectively. I work well both individually and
I love brainstorming ideas and creating designs for different clothing items. (I
submitted a couple designs and suggestions for the Better in B.Ed Social Night this
1. I have years two years of experience as a camp
coordinator and program coordinator for the City of
Ottawa, so I'm sure there are some mutual coordinator
related tasks across both of these positions. Running a
camp and/or community program for children requires
a lot of detailed organization and creative planning,
paperwork, and the list goes on and on! I feel that as a
camp/program coordinator I have mastered being able
to juggle all of the responsibilities the position entails. I
would love to share and apply the experience and
knowledge I have accumulated as a camp/program
coordinator to other opportunities.
2. I have a desire to volunteer, get involved and help out.
Our Queen's Trent program is amazing, and I would love
to give back to it. Con Ed students wear their clothing
proudly and I think that the clothing order is a
wonderful way to express our love for what we do.
3. I believe that as clothing coordinator I will be able to fully
utilize my high degree of enthusiasm and
determination, my strong organizational skills, and my
ability to work well with others.
1. I had the opportunity of attending the Queens-Trent Conference on
Education 2014. I learned a lot from this conference that will help
me in my future teaching career. This conference was a very
rewarding experience and I feel that I can apply what I learned this
year at the conference to assist the Senior Professional
Development Coordinator in planning a conference that is just as
fun and rewarding for whoever attends the Queens-Trent
Conference on Education 2015. I feel that the Queens-Trent
Conference on Education is a very rewarding opportunity for all of
us Con-Eddies as Queens is a very big part of who we are!
2. I feel that my passion for teaching would be evident in the effort that
I will put into assisting with planning this conference. When I went
to the conference this year I felt even more passionate about
teaching and I want to help ensure that you feel that passion too!
The conference is a great opportunity for up and coming teachers
to gain knowledge on many aspects of teaching, as well as to
develop strategies to teaching that can enhance our teaching
styles to be the best teachers that we can be!!
3. Finally, from attending the Queens-Trent Conference along with many
other events run by CESA during my first year at Trent, I have had
the opportunity of meeting so many amazing people. My goal is to
provide the opportunity for everyone to interact and learn from
each other. The friendships that I made at the conference helped
to make the experience even more rewarding and I hope to help
make that possible at the 2015 conference as well. Building
friendships with students from both Trent and Queens are an
important part of our learning and I hope to play a part on making
the Queens-Trent Conference on Education even better than the
1. My involvement here at Trent University over the past 4 years has been quite diverse. I have been
lucky enough to participate in a number of different programs through Trent such as both Tutoring
and Senior Outreach Program through Frontier College, Peer Support Leader for Champlain College,
and Penpal volunteer. My experience with a range of different organizations within Trent and the
Peterborough Community has impacted my decision to run for Community and Human Issues
representative. I hope to offer similar volunteer opportunities which will help you connect to both
the Trent and Peterborough community.
2. My commitment to current issues in teaching. Queens-Trent Concurrent Education program has
taught me a great deal about diversity within the classroom. Not only has the information brought
awareness to my own teaching practices, but I hope to instill and promote these types of issues to
both current and incoming students in order to aid them in exploring a wide range of issues, such
as gender and sexuality as well as special needs, in order to help pre-service teachers develop their
personal portfolios and expand their own teaching practices. My 3rd year placement experience
provided me insight to the complexity of special education and I would love the opportunity to
facilitate this experience to all Con-Ed students.
3. My love and dedication for volunteering to support community initiatives/projects. In high school, I
was an executive member on my school's Relay For Life committee which raised funds for the
Canadian Cancer Society. The event brought together both the school and Halton community in
order to collectively fight the battle against cancer. The continuous support from the community
helped to make this event truly successful and helped sustain strong community ties. During my 3rd
year at Trent, I was on the ISW Charity Committee which continues to raise funds for the Kawartha
Haliburton's Children Foundation. My participation on the committee will definitely aid me in
providing future fundraising opportunities for the CESA community to help support Outreach
projects in the Peterborough Community. My experience both in working with the community as well
as actively participating in projects will help me to provide similar opportunities for volunteer
experience. Both Relay for Life and ISW Charity Committee were two of the most rewarding
experiences at Trent and I hope to get the chance to continue to offer great volunteer experience for
fellow teachers in the CESA community.
1. I have been a dedicated member of
CESA this year as a Member at Large
and want to take on a larger
commitment on CESA next year. I have
enjoyed being a member of CESA and
want to make a bigger contribution to
this great council!
2. I have two years of experience of being a
secretary from my high school music
3. I am a very detail-oriented and organized
person and would make sure to take
accurate meeting minutes and send
them and any other information to
CESA members promptly.
1) I am very organized, though I know anyone
running for this position will be. I have organized
various canoe trips, up to 5 days, which requires
detailed organizing of equipment, food, routes
and paperwork. These trip planning experiences
have attributed to making me organized in my
2) I am an effective communicator which would aid
me in dispersing meeting details to other
Executive members. I have previously helped
organize various communication methods for
staff of up to 40 people and currently manage
staff at the Trent a Gym where I am in charge of
scheduling and training.
3) I am outgoing and friendly. I like to be around
people and have learned how to work with many
different personality types through working at
camp for 4 years. I try my hardest in anything I
do and would put full effort into my role.
1. I've been a part of CESA for the past 3 years, so I have been exposed to and involved
with many aspects of the executive, including treasurer duties such as applying for
funding and determining the budget.
2. As I was a CESA social representative for 2 of those 3 years, I was responsible for using
CESA's money in order to plan various social events! This means I already have
experience working with CESA's money and sticking to their budget.
3. I am reliable, trustworthy, and just as importantly, organized!
1) For the past two years I have been a part of the CESA Exec as the
Junior and now Senior Social Affairs Representative. This means
that I have organized some of the awesome social events that we
have held, such as the First Year Social, the Con Ed Better in B.ED
Social Night, the Con Ed Coffee House, this year's Con Ed Formal,
and the Super Fun Night at the Ceilie. I have a lot of experience on
the CESA Exec and am very familiar with how things run and with
what you, the members of CESA, want from your Exec. I hope to
continue to be a positive representation of our wonderful program
in the future!
2) For two years now, I have also been an ISW Staff Member for Lady
Eaton College, and this year I am to be the Co-Chair for ISW at Lady
Eaton College. Through these experiences, I have shown my
enthusiasm and spirit as well as my ability to be a part of and to
lead an effective team, which I think would be valuable in the
position of CESA Vice-President.
3) I LOVE our program and care about the future of Education programs
at Trent! I have been actively involved in keeping up to date on
what has been happening with our program and with the CESA
Exec's efforts to maintain our program and the wonderful things
that our program and our students have brought to the school. I
look forward to taking your ideas for how to make sure that all that
our students have done for Trent remains important and useful for
future Education students!
1) I have been on CESA for the past 2 years as Jr. then
Sr. Red Apple Editor, so I am well-aware of how
CESA operates and am dedicated to the
2) I am involved in many other extra-curricular activities
at Trent, including ISW staff, LEC Cabinet and
Relay for Life Committee, which have allowed me
to make many connections with students that
would be valuable as CESA evolves with the
3) My prior leadership experience, such as in the
activities mentioned above and in my job and high
school in Stratford, has given me the skills that I
believe are necessary for the role of President,
such as teamwork and leading by example. :)
