Thank you for inquiring about who I am.   I am a candidate for Trustee for the District School Board of Niagara Grimsby/Town of Lincoln.   This website will provide you with the information about myself but please feel free to contact me through the contact section if you have any further questions, I would love to assist you with them.

 

Welcome

Hi, Thanks so much for dropping in. It’s important to vote informed.

I live in the Town of Lincoln and have lived here for 26 years. We are a very unique community and are blessed with the presence of farms, fresh fruit, grapes, wineries and so much more. We are diverse and unique with the Niagara Escarpment located in our community and creating such a thriving area.

With that being said, I have also been an active part in my community, volunteering much time in classrooms and on Parent Council while my children were growing up and attending the local school. I have worked with educators on all levels for many years and am very familiar with the challenges that our educators face daily. Being active has given me a unique perspective into our community and the unique challenges and needs that face our educators, our parents and their children.

In hopes of being a Trustee, I once again look forward to working with parents, children and educators being a liaison for our community. I hope to be the voice that you need when you have concerns. I am approachable and would love to hear from you if you have any questions.

My contact form can be found on this website and I personally respond to each request for information. Thanks for considering me as your Trustee for the Town of Lincoln/Grimsby DSBN English speaking community.

About

Hi, my name is Elizabeth Klassen.  I have lived with my husband and children in the Town of Lincoln for 26 years.   My husband and I have had five wonderful boys, a wonderful daughter in law and one little granddaughter now.  Our boys attended our local school, Vineland Public School,  where their father and his siblings also attended.   I have been a very active parent in this community, volunteering at local churches as a leader in Coffee Break/Story Hour (a mother/children inductive Bible study) (11 years), volunteering in Vineland Public School classrooms (16 years),  at the Special Olympics as a photographer,  fundraising events for cancer, Police Ride to Remember photography, Canadian Police Memorial photography, Tug of War a Project Share fundraiser as a photographer and advertising, at Artfest (16 years), and most of all being a member of the Parent Council (15 years), as well as Chair of Vineland Public School Parent Council (10 years) and Eden High School Parent Council Constitution subcommittee (1 year).  Giving and being an active part in my community has always been important to me.

If you don’t already know me or know of me please let me tell you a little about myself.   I am a wife, mother of five boys, a mother in law, grandmother and a photographer.  I love to travel and my business takes me to places I would never have dreamed of travelling to.   I am approachable, sensitive, and love to meet new people.   I am also not afraid to be outspoken about needs and be a voice for those who feel they don’t necessarily have one.  I am a good listener and can also call it as I see it.   I have held positions of leadership and am responsible, caring and trustworthy.

I am looking forward to being an active liaison between our parents, educators, and children of our community as a Trustee for the District School Board of Niagara for Grimsby/Town of Lincoln (English speaking).
