Circle of Advisors

Our Circle of Advisors played a critical role in the foundation of Teach For Canada–Gakinaamaage. Together, they brought national experience in rural, remote, and Indigenous education, having served as teachers, principals, superintendents, education directors, professors, and in other leadership positions across the country. These individuals each played an integral role in our organization, and helped to advise our program design and long-term strategy.
