Testimonials

“I thought that the timing of everything worked really well. I loved the workshops offered, there was a huge variety. It was really helpful that it showed which ones were dedicated towards leadership. I enjoyed watching the teachers and organizations receive their awards, as well as the panel with past recipients. My favourite part though, was how inclusive it is to everyone!”

– Brigitte Benning, Indigenous Educator, Peace Wapiti School District

“While many may offer workshops to assist teachers in realizing the TRC Calls to Action, The National Gathering ensures that the voice of Indigenous people stays at the fore. Even more importantly, this conference fed my soul at the same time as it increased my knowledge and provoked reflection. I recommend this conference wherever I travel.”

– Diane Dewing, President, Ontario Teachers’ Federation

“The presenters were interesting and I found all of my sessions quite informative. I will incorporate some educational strategies in my classroom right away and my curricular planning in the upcoming month will be much more informed. I met other people who shared some of my interests so I’m sure I’ll develop these new connections in the near future.”

– Maxine Hildebrandt, Teacher, Mother Earth’s Children’s Charter School
