High Prairie School Division is pleased to welcome Bee Calliou Schadeck as our guest speaker for the October 28th Divisional Professional Development Day. The day is designed to support our school division as we work collaboratively to improve the quality of learning for all our students while putting a special emphasis on closing the First Nations, Metis, and Inuit Achievement Gap.
Bee’s workshop will extend the work the Division started last year at the Divisional Professional Development Day in Joussard where all staff explored the impact of residential schools and how to start creating more welcoming and caring learning environments for all learners and community members.
Bee Calliou Schadeck is a member of the Michel First Nation, Treaty #6, Alberta. She spent her childhood on a farm and also raised her three children in rural Alberta. Bee’s career began as a laboratory technician and after a project was stalled by First Nation communities, Bee was launched into unfamiliar territory. Bee began a discovery of our country’s history and over time became one of the most sought after Aboriginal awareness educators in Alberta. She now draws on over 35 years of experience to enrich her awareness sessions.
