The Québec educators highlighted in this series of three blog posts in the fourth annual Teacher and School Staff Appreciation shout-outs clearly show their love for their students and for their chosen profession. Valentine’s Day must be coming because love is certainly in the air!

LEARN was pleased to meet with Minister Kathleen Weil and Political Advisor, Gregory Kelley on December 11, 2017 at our corporate head office in Laval.

I had the opportunity with a number of my colleagues to discuss with the Minister how LEARN supports the English-speaking community, student success, youth retention, access to resources via our schools, online learning, the CLC Initiative and community vitality in Quebec.  We had an excellent open and frank exchange on  common concerns as well as the importance of preparing young adults for the future.  

The Minister’s openness and candor, in addition to her readiness to support not only LEARN’s objectives, but our community at large, was very much appreciated.

We look forward to collaborating with Minister Weil and her team in the coming weeks to support the educational life-long interests of the English-speaking community of Quebec.
