Our staff concentrate on assisting communities with their educational initiatives. Services are designed according to the types of requests received on major concerns discussed at various meetings.
The department of education encompasses, also, activities such as: counselling students; assisting in tuition agreement negotiations; providing education resource and curriculum information; providing ongoing advice to Education Authorities and Boards; providing, as required, other needed services.
Activities include post secondary education program administration for First Nations on request.
A critical component of Barbara's philosophy of teaching is to instill a sense of personal responsibility in students – to be the very change they seek in the world. She believes community engagement is foundational, and actively links theory with the communities her students work with in classroom projects. Understanding communities differently, students learn from local stakeholders, synthesizing priorities and creating real-world solutions.
