Trina Hurdman was first elected in 2013 and was re-elected in 2017 in wards 1 and 2 in northwest Calgary.
Trina believes that there are very few things that matter more than a strong public education system. Education is a community endeavour and Trina is passionate about bringing people together, listening to diverse perspectives and working with others to make our education system the best it can be. She is also an avid reader who constantly seeks to learn best practices in education and governance in order to better serve Calgarians.
Trina is a former educator who taught in Quebec, Ontario and Taiwan before moving to Calgary in 2004 and having three children. She has been involved in the Calgary Board of Education as a parent, as a school council chair and as an executive member of the Association for Responsive Trusteeship in Calgary Schools. She has a Bachelors of Science degree from Waterloo University and a Masters in Educational Technology from the University of Calgary. In addition to volunteering at schools, she also currently volunteers as a YMCA preschool teacher.
