Our inspiring guests in this episode are Dr. Yvonne Poitras Pratt, Métis Scholar, Research Excellence Chair, and award-winning teacher educator at the University of Calgary, and Veronica Doyle, an incredible Teacher and Assistant Principal at Rocky View School Division.
In this special episode, Yvonne first joins Dana for a follow-up conversation to her first appearance on the Teacher Fan Club, Episode 4, where she discussed Truth and Reconciliation in Education and three entry points to the work of reconciliation. In Episode 22, they discuss their shared experience working together as Dana lives the three entry points with Yvonne: Listening to and learning from; Walking with and learning from; and Working with and learning from.
After attending an impactful professional learning session led by Yvonne, and a powerful activity symbolizing the ripple effects of taking intentional action for reconciliation, Veronica took up The Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action in her own life and teaching practice, creating a significant and ever-growing ripple effect across her community. Listen to Yvonne, Dana, and Veronica share stories of ripple effects and opportunities to mobilize the Calls to Action in your own life and teaching.
