I value my family and children.                           

I value my community and neighbourhood.

I value the education system and educating people of all ages.

I value member-owned organizations and folks taking their own initiative to better themselves.

I believe it is important to help others, those disenfranchised, homeless, mentally challenged, physically challenged, and simply people without hope.

As I teacher, I valued helping students get through difficult times, in that I had a special program located outside of the regular school setting. Often students found themselves lost and without a clear direction of where to go in life
