About Me

I have been an elementary and secondary school teacher and administrator. Currently, I am a faculty member in the Faculty of Education at Wilfrid Laurier University, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. My M.Ed. and Ph.D. had a focus on the educational and linguistic experiences of children who moved from other countries to Canada.

UNICEF and Free the Children

I've just finished some conversations with UNICEF Canada about working together to deliver workshops to our teacher candidates at Laurier regarding global citizenship.  I'm meeting with Free the Children (founded by Craig Kielburger) next week to talk about how we might work together as well.  One of the exciting things about global/glocal education is the willingness of people and groups to work together.

More on how we might work with UNICEF and Free the Children in future blogs!
