MESSAGE FROM LEONA

Thank You!

My sincere thanks for your friendship and support during my 3 years in the CAE BEd HRD Coordinator role!

I have enjoyed my time at the Faculty of Ed, but as you know I have energy and passion for many things, and I’m choosing to make another transition.

I will continue to teach in the program and devote more time to my business Choice Point Coaching and Facilitation.

I’m always open for a tea on my veranda so take this as an invitation.

I wish you all the best as your journey continues.

I’m attaching a couple recipes for treats I sometimes brought in to work – enjoy!  (Click here for Bran Berry Muffins and here for Oatmeal Cookies)

Sincerely,
LeonaMy home email is here, and my number is 394-6972.

EDUCATION ALUMNI RECEPTION AND BASIL’S RETIREMENT CELEBRATION – 25-JULY-2014

The All Year’s Reunion Weekend is being held July 25-27th on the UPEI Campus.   As part of this, the Faculty of Education Interim Dean, Dr. Ron MacDonald, is hosting an All Year’s Education Alumni Reception honouring Basil Favaro on his retirement.  The reception will be held 25-July-2014 from 5-7 pm under a tent (rain or shine!) in front of the W.A. Murphy Student Centre.  We are hoping that many former students and colleagues will join us in reminiscing and celebrating Basil and the tremendous life-changing effects he has had on all of his students.

Everyone is welcome and encouraged to come wish Basil well.  If you planning on joining us for this event, please RSVP to Nicole.  If you would like to say a few words during the event, please also let Nicole know.
