Mi’kmaw Language and Culture team update

Two networking sessions were held with Mi’kmaw language teachers over the past few weeks. One was held in the mainland and the other at the cultural centre in Eskasoni. As always, teachers truly enjoy being able to come together and gather as a group.

Teachers at ESK & Wagmatcook had PD with Beverly Jeddore for the following:

Conjugation Resource Book

Animate & Inanimate Poster Size Cards

All About Me Sheet

Study Sheet

Early Childhood Education

Our ECE coordinator had two Professional Development days scheduled for May. Due to our current restrictions both training sessions will most likely take place virtually.
