We are currently searching for presenters for our 2016 Soaring with Knowledge Conference in Edmonton Alberta on November 17-19, 2016! If you are interested, please email our 'speaker proposal' form back to Linda Weaselhead @ email@example.com.
The primary purpose of the specialist council, open to all Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal teachers alike, is to facilitate professional development related to First Nations, Métis and Inuit education. As well the specialist council advocates for First Nations, Métis and Inuit students and their issues; adds capacity to the Alberta Teachers’ Association by providing Indigenous ways of knowing; and to develop or connect teachers/educators to Aboriginal resources available across Alberta for use in their classrooms. It is hoped that the specialist council could also foster relationships with elders and spiritual advisers in each community to help bridge the gap between the community and local schools.
Special 'THANK YOU' to all who helped to make our
9th Annual "Soaring With Knowledge"
2015 First Nations Metis & Inuit Education Council Conference was such a HUGE SUCCESS!
Your interest in and dedication to Aboriginal Education made it all possible for our conference to happen.
