ABORIGINAL EDUCATION IN SD64
Aboriginal Education in School District No. 64 (Gulf Islands) is dedicated to supporting the success of Aboriginal learners in our school district, as well as promoting a deep awareness of Aboriginal culture and history among all students.
MEET THE TEAM
Deeply proud of her Cree & Irish roots Shannon is Aboriginal Education Coordinator in SD64. As a life long learner and outdoor enthusiast, the First Peoples Principles of Learning align closely with her passions and values as district coordinator, principal, middle years eco teacher and member of a close knit family.
I am of Secwepemc descent, born Neskonlith, raised in Maple Ridge (where I honed my craft of being a cultural teacher) and now being refined into island life on the Gulf Islands. It has been a privilege and a pleasure being part of the energy, community and team at SD64.
