We were fortunate to have Faye Brownlie present at our Spring Event on Inclusive Literacy Practices. Faye was entertaining and thought provoking as usual and we thank her for sharing with us.
In 2013 we had a wonderful time at the Spring Chapter Event in Richmond on Saturday, March 2 at the Sheraton Hotel. School districts from all over the province, including Haida Gwaii, Prince George, Creston, Peace River South, from the north end of Vancouver Island to the south, Cranbrook, Surrey, Vancouver and many more were represented. We talked about what inspired us as teachers and in turn we were inspired by others.
Primary teachers were treated to a presentation from Maureen Dockendorf about the Changing Results for Young Readers initiative from the Ministry of Education, as well as the new Primary 0-8 Framework and a discussion about new curriculum development.
Once again the British Columbia Primary Teachers’ Association will be hosting a Spring Event for members.
