Hi, I'm Juliet



My name is Juliet Bushi, and I am running for the position of Board Trustee in the Regina Catholic School Board. As a way of introduction, I am a mother of three adorable children and the wife to my best friend. Beyond the home, I am a Ph. D. candidate at the University of Regina with many years of professional and volunteer experience in Regina. As an educator, I work with pre-service and in-service teachers in a supervisory and advisory role. Almost two decades ago, I moved from Nigeria to begin my post-secondary education journey at the University of Regina. Within those years, I have come to love and learn about the education system in Saskatchewan and the city at large through the lens of my children and my experience as a student, educator, and as an active member of my community. I have been in awe of the work that has been done to set up such a dynamic school system but also compelled by the work that still needs to be done to keep it equitable and inclusive for all. In these years, I made a commitment to serve, and these principles have guided my pathway: community service, education, and advocacy.


My role as a sessional lecturer of over eight years

at both the University of Regina and the First Nations University of Canada has allowed me to understand both the post-secondary and elementary school system and the challenges parents and students experience. I am also an active member of the University of Regina Faculty Association (URFA). I sit on various committees to advocate for job security, health and safety, academic freedom,  pension, and benefit, allowing sessional lecturers to flourish. I also advocated for changes in human resource policies and practices that create opportunities for racialized individuals and people with disabilities.


Equity Meets Opportunity

As an advocate, I have sat on two bargaining tables, negotiating the rights of sessional lecturers and our students to ensure they get the best support they need to achieve academic excellence. I have worked with community organizations and youth-led initiatives to address social issues that affect our students. In my role as an advocate, I ensured that inequitable measures, policies, and practices that continue to deny racialized students, staff, and faculty opportunities to succeed are dismantled.


Our classroom has become more diverse, with children from various backgrounds with unique learning abilities.  I believe that there is more work to be done in making sure that our teachers are well prepared and our classrooms are well equipped. As such, I am a strong advocate for an accessible and equitable education system where our students can learn and grow in a culturally safe environment and where teachers are well equipped to understand and safely address inequitable practices and barriers in and outside of their classroom. 


 If elected, I will work hard to ensure:

 That our children have access to innovative, enriched learning opportunities.

That our teachers are well informed, and our classrooms are equipped with the right resources.

That school plans and policies reflect the diversity of our schools and our province.

That teachers and EA's can apply culturally relevant pedagogies in their lessons.

That our schools are a site for reconciliation and anti-racism education where children do not have to navigate the school system but can find schools as a site for refuge 

That our students, teachers, and staff have access to mental health support

That our children will be given the best possible resources to become lifelong learners and achieve personal growth and academic success.


On November 9th, Vote Juliet Bushi for the Regina Catholic School Division Board Trustee and Let's Keep Education a Priority.
