As Chair, Trustee and TDSB parent, Robin is committed to achieving quality and equity of opportunity for students through financially sustainable solutions. Working together with her fellow Trustees, the City of Toronto, and the Province of Ontario, she is also passionate about continuing to build upon the TDSB’s work to develop schools as hubs for the community.
