ENGLISH LANGUAGE SCHOOL BOARD PRESENTATION

Just a reminder that Superintendent Cynthia Fleet and Tammy Hubley-Little of the English Language School Board will be speaking to the BEd Committee on Wednesday, 28-Oct-2015 from 9:00am to 11:00am in McDougall Hall 329.  The presentation will cover current and planned initiatives, current needs and challenges, as well as their perspectives on the national teaching profession and teacher qualifications.  The BEd Committee extends an invitation to attend these presentations to all faculty and sessionals who have taught with us this academic year.

This important meeting is an excellent opportunity to directly interact with one of our PEI education stakeholders. This type of interaction is called for in our developing Strategic Plan.

IN THE NEWS – JEREMY!

CBC News recently featured a story that included an interview with Jeremy TeRaa.  The Faculty is fortunate to have Jeremy deliver our mail each day through the Stars For Life Foundation. His daily visits always bring a smile to the administrative office.  You can read all about the art classes at Stars for Life, and Jeremy’s participation here.
