Tansi, Hau, Bonjour, Hello.

Greetings to everyone in Treaty Six Territory and beyond. My name is Michelle Sanderson. I am the First Nations and Metis Achievement Consultant for Living Sky School Division. I began my assignment in November of 2013.  Prior to this assignment, I have taught in classrooms in Saskatoon, Canoe Lake, Witchekan Lake and Muskeg Lake during my short 9 year teaching career. I recently returned to school  in 2010 to attain my Master of Education. I am newly convocated and am grateful for the break in studies.   I am a traditional Cree and have practiced living a cultural life as taught by my parents and relatives. I am trying very hard to learn our languages from these lands. I am very honoured to have this assignment to help positively affect the achievement of my people. I hope my education and expertise will be helpful during my post and I hope to make friends and to hear from each and every one of you.

I have researched and uploaded a  variety of links, which I hope are helpful, to assist teachers, administrators and support staff to to meet their curriculum objectives and to enrich their teaching expertise. I have separated the websites according to Indigenous Knowledge and Anti-Racist Education. I went to every page that is uploaded and made sure the links are live, recently updated on September 11, 2015.  I wish you good luck on your teaching/learning journey for the 2015-2016 school year. Feel free to contact me, to help, assist in any way regarding First Nations achievement, promising practices, culture, curriculum outcomes and indicators and anti-racism.
