In communities all across Saskatchewan, teachers inspire kids to learn, discover new talents and passions, and achieve their goals.
In February, we asked Saskatchewan people to share stories about teachers who inspire and did they ever! We received almost 50 amazing stories from every corner of Saskatchewan, and we know these stories are just a drop in the bucket in terms of teachers’ impact.
We’ve partnered with CTV to tell three of those stories, showcasing the work that teachers do in classrooms and communities every single day.
Natalie Agecoutay-Sweet from Regina’s Albert Community School teachers Indigenous curriculum and programming. She teaches beading, has started a speaker series and is leading the way to install a permanent outdoor Indigenous learning space to help ensure that the many Indigenous students at Albert School have access to their culture and tradition. Thanks Natalie for all you do to inspire your students! Check out Natalie’s interview with CTV on their website.
Meet Saskatchewan teacher Tom Simes. Tom teaches media at Evan Hardy Collegiate in Saskatoon and shares his passion for film with the hopes of inspiring students to showcase their creativity on the big screen. His passion for teaching and his dedication to his students comes through every time he speaks. Thanks Tom for everything you do to inspire our next generation. Check out Tom’s interview with CTV on their website.
Meet Monica Peredudoff from Connaught School in North Battleford. Monica teaches grades one and two at Connaught. Her class participates in the Better Together program, a local initiative that connects students at Connaught with seniors at Ruth Whyte Manor, a local seniors’ residence. The connections across generations make such a big difference, both to the students and the seniors. Thanks Monica for helping to ensure that schools strengthen the community in North Battleford.
Our kids and their teachers: It’s time to invest in Saskatchewan’s schools
At a time when families are more aware than ever of the importance of teachers, it’s high time to make the case for increased investment in schools in this province.
Arena rink boards throughout rural Saskatchewan show teachers and parents together, both cheering for our kids.
Meanwhile, digital ads and billboards are making the case that it’s time to invest in classrooms.
Join us to call for needed investments in schools
