It’s hard to believe that another year has gone by and we are welcoming a new group of students to the program. As I reflect on the past 12 months, I recall the many wonderful events held in celebration of the Year of Indigenous Education and I look forward to the initiatives and programming that the Faculty of Education has planned for the Year of Teacher Education.
