Teacher Training in Lac La Croix
It’s our favourite time of the year! With the start of the new school year, our team has the pleasure of heading out to visit our community partners. We offer our returning teachers a refresher session on our platform, and we provide all new teachers with hands-on training on how to best use the Learning Bird resources and platform in their classroom.
Earlier this month, Joelle headed out to Zhingwaako Zaaga’Iganing school in Lac La Croix First Nation to meet with the teachers. The school had several new teachers, including two from Teach for Canada. While she was at the school, Joelle had the opportunity to meet all the new staff and to reconnect with the ones who had been part of the program last year.
We shared some of the community-specific content we completed last year and reviewed all the great changes to our platform to make it even easier for teachers to find and share resources with their students.
In addition to her training session, Joelle was invited into some of the classes. She sat in on Rolland Atatise’s language class and watched the Teach for Canada team as they filmed one of their teachers, Nolan Wurfel, in action.
We will be working with the teachers this year to create some more local resources that showcase and share the community language and culture.
