Kaleb Child (School District 85)

We are excited to announce Kaleb Child as this year's conference keynote. Kaleb Child (Musgam’dzi) is a member of the Kwakiutl (Kwa-Gulth) First Nation on northern Vancouver Island and is Director of Instruction First Nations, for School District #85. He is currently on secondment to the Ministry of Education working along with the Aboriginal Education Team on supporting the vision forward for learning in BC. In his role across communities he works to enhance program development committed to a Kwakwaka’wakw vision for pedagogy, language and culture revitalization and Aboriginal worldviews and perspectives.

Keynote presentation:

"Tlayu’la gaxans gwi’gwala’yu – Making Collective Change for All Children"

This presentation will overview the emerging themes and the developing understandings of how educators can lead, transform, and continue to grow their relationships to indigenous cultures and communities as they support learning for all students.  Participants will have the opportunity to engage professionally with each other and discuss the implementation of the ‘Aboriginal Worldviews and Perspectives in the Classroom’ resource document that is now available.   

There will also be a wide range of engaging and relevant workshops for teachers of French, Spanish, German, Japanese, Mandarin and Punjabi. There will be various workshops for all languages and levels.  Be prepared to be inspired!
