Meet Our Specialists – 9

MFNERC employs five teams of specialists who work directly with Manitoba’s First Nation Schools, Education Boards and communities, and we’d like you to meet some of them! Each team is made up of a literacy, science, numeracy, special education, language & culture, assessment, and school planning specialist. They travel to different regions of the province, determining needs, developing plans and bringing the process of capacity building directly to the schools. We also have a wide variety of other specialists in areas such as technology, research & development, early childhood education and speech & language who travel to all our schools during the year. As well, throughout the school year, and driven by the plans that the schools themselves have developed, these specialists host workshops and forums, and help create resources for the educators and administrators.
