My M.Ed. and Ph.D. had a focus on the educational and linguistic experiences of children who moved from other countries to Canada.

Workshops with teachers and school principals in Cap-Haitien
Yesterday we were able to lead a two hour workshop for teachers and principals on using manipulatives in math and on school leadership. Jhonel Movan and Amy Lin from the Ontario Ministry of Education led a nearly 2 hour workshop on using manipulatives. They both did an amazing job and it was very well received. Thanks to Amy's work, we were able to leave over $1,000 in manipulatives for the Faculty of Education at Regio Assumption College and for the new school that Thelus Wilson, one of our hosts for the week, has started (in the photo below, are Thelus, Amy, Jhonel, and a math teacher from Regio Assumption College). I concluded with a challenge to the group regarding school leadership which seemed to give a good conclusion to the afternoon.
