Edward Tse for Separate School Trustee
Our children need to be prepared to
Compete in a Global Workplace
Blessings, I’m Dr. Edward Tse, a dad of two boys in CCSD. With 15 years of experience in education and technology I know that for our children to compete in a global workplace, they will need to learn 21st century skills that will not be replaced by Artificial Intelligence (AI) and automation.
I’m advocating for our children today so that they thrive now and in the future. Here’s how my experience will work for you as your Separate School Trustee
It’s not enough to survey Parents.
Let’s report on the actions we take from Parent feedback.
Curriculum and Skills
What happens when your boss is an artificial intelligence (AI) and not a person?
We need 21st century skills that won’t be replaced by AI.
It’s not enough to provide historical awareness of First Nations.
We can advocate for action that helps indigenous people today.
Diversity and Inclusion
CCSD has a rich cultural diversity that can enhance the learning for all.
Here’s one dad’s perspective
Health and Wellness
It’s not enough to speak to mental health awareness.
We need opportunities to use empathy in practice.
Defending Catholic Education
It’s not enough to argue that we have a constitutional right to Catholic education.
We can position Catholic education as a benefit for all.
Meet Edward Tse
Hey, I’m Dr. Edward Tse, a lifelong Calgarian, and a dad of two extraordinary children, including my son with diverse learning needs.
As a father of two boys in the Calgary Catholic School District (CCSD) with international industry experience in education and technology, I bring a unique and valuable perspective to the board of trustees—one focused on preparing our students for a tech-centric future. Our world continues to grow more secular. For Catholic education to be relevant and thrive in the future, our children must have Future Ready Skills to be impactful in their workplaces and to serve faithfully in their community. It’d be an honour to be elected by Calgary Ward 1, 2 and Cochrane residents to serve respectfully, collaboratively and faithfully with fellow CSSD trustees.
I was the founding School Council chair for two CSSD schools including the 5,700 learners at St Isidore Online School. I worked with administrators and parents to strengthen our parent and student communities. I advocated for social and emotional support for not just our children but also for parents. I believe in using new ways to defend Catholic education. My Ph.D. from the University of Calgary is in Computer Science.
Future Ready Skills
In May I stood united with parents against trying the new Alberta K-6 Curriculum at the Alberta School Council Association AGM. How can our decades old curriculum adapt to help our children to thrive?
With over 1/2 of GenZ students freelancing on Platforms such as Fiverr and Upwork, what happens when your boss is an Artificial intelligence (Ai) and not a person? Indeed almost everything we see on the Internet was selected by Ai.
That’s exactly why I founded Ai Parenting, to inspire families to move from screen time to quality time and to share new approaches to digital citizenship for privacy, wellness, and freelancing.

Choosing Calgary Catholic
I was not born and raised Catholic. When St Peter was called by Jesus to follow him, he made a choice to do so. I too felt a calling and made a choice to become a Catholic.
As a scientist watching the growing divide between science and religion broke my heart. I had always believed that both science and religion are tools to getting to the truth. Many Catholic scientists believed they were uncovering the mysteries of creation. I always believed that God called us to think deeply like scientists.
I tell my kids that the most valuable class in their schooling is their religion class. We live in a world of tech and science that is constantly changing. If our children are not following God then who are they following? Today’s influencers are following other influencers whose are seeking sponsorship and profits rather than the truth.
I can’t promise that I’ve memorized every Catholic tradition; I’m still learning through serving at St Peter’s Catholic Church. What I can promise is that I will pursue God‘s will for my life with passion. I answered the call to be the founding School Council Chair of Blessed Marie Rose School, I answered the call to be the founding School Council Chair of the St Isidore Online School, and I am now answering the call to be your Catholic School trustee in Calgary Wards 1, 2, and the beautiful town of Cochrane.
