My Odyssey for Equality in Education

Episode 23


My first stop on my western tour was in north-western Ontario. I met with Jeannie McMaster, a literacy consultant who is recently retired from the Kenora District School Board. Jeannie is a very dynamic and dedicated professional who is working with the aboriginal community to help underachieving children to succeed in school. She is also embarking on a trip to Australia where she will consult with local educators.

I had an opportunity to share my information and materials with her. She will be sharing this with the director and superintendents in the Kenora DSB, leaders in the aboriginal community and educators in Australia.

Later in the day I arrived in Winnipeg where I have a presentation at the Sir William Stevenson Branch of the public library on Wednesday evening, July 10 at 7:00 pm. This is sponsored by the Equitable Child Maintenance & Access Society.
