A Day in the Life of a Northern Teacher

During this webinar, a Teach For Canada teacher will share about their classroom, their motivations for going north, and examples of how their day may look different from other teaching settings. This webinar will also provide some insight on how the preparation provided by Teach For Canada provides can be relevant in your day-to-day work.

This webinar consists of a presentation by a Teach For Canada staff member and a panelist who has lived and taught in a northern First Nation. You will also hear about how teachers have been navigating teaching in the North with COVID-19 impacting schools and education. We encourage you to participate through the chat box and the occasional poll question. Are you interested in going North with non-teaching family members? We encourage them to participate in this webinar so they can assess their own fit for a northern First Nation.

Teach For Canada is dedicated to making our events accessible for all participants. Should you require any accommodations (e.g. audio/visual support) to participate fully in this event, please contact selection@teachforcanada.ca.
