As the Director of Education, I provide assistance to the Head Start and Preschool staff and K-12 tutors. I coordinate with Pamela Burtt and Robert Breckenridge, our tutors, to provide activity nights for students at the Band Hall. They are also offering parent activity nights now and it has been a great opportunity for parents to connect with our tutors and learn how they can become more involved in their child’s school.
I am a liaison between the Anglophone North School District and Pabineau First Nation. I meet with the Chief, Council, and Superintendent regularly to ensure that the Education Re-investment Strategy is effective in providing special educational services to our students. I am also on the Board of Directors at F.N.E.I.I. and continue to support the on-going work and objectives for improving our student’s educational experiences. I keep track of the students who are enrolled in public schools and the transition center to ensure that our nominal roll is up-to-date, student fees are paid on time, and that parents receive school supply allowances. I also assist in addressing any issues at the school level.
I will be hosting the Education Gala each year to recognize the academic achievements of our community members from the pre-school level to University/College levels. It is a wonderful occasion and I prepare a new poster of role models in our community to present at this event. I prepare and submit proposals and reports such as the Youth Employment Strategy and Aboriginal Languages Initiative. I also provide administrative support to the Chief and Council as needed.
Please contact me to find out more about courses that may become available in our community. I can also provide assistance in applying for scholarships or if you need help in finding programs that offer financial services while taking a trade or pursuing post-secondary education.
