I have participated in a conference in Oxford University as a Honorary Director General of the International Biographical Center located in Oxford. As a UN Advisor, I gave a speech in The Siberian Academy For Public Administration located in Novosibirsk, the capitol of Siberia. I was given a tour of
Akademgorodok , the previously secret research facility
in Siberia. I met and had dinner with the Leadership Chair of UNESCO, Dr. Adele Saftey.
My one year PGCE earned through a school centred initiated teacher training program is considered by Alberta Education to be deficient in university based education courses and in-service program...have appealed , written to the minister of education and got nowhere except for the recommendation to go back to Uni and get a B.Ed thru a 2-yr program...of course I would be paying for that so whilst it was not easy to accept this at first, now, I am quite content at the moment doing what I do... I can contribute my talents and skills to this world while doing any job in the end. It is not the kind of work I do that allows me to be of service. It is who I must choose to be of service through the work that I do. I appreciate your kind feedback... .In peace..
I retrained as a high school science teacher on leaving my work in academe...I was discomforted that so many of my colleagues lived in their heads and not their bodies....disconnected from their students..teaching is a two way process for me....
Thanks and critical pedagogy is what it is all about and I learned a lot when I taught a course "Women and Science" at the Memorial University of Newfoundland and my outlook changed for ever...in the schools I have worked my teaching has always been from that perspective and I always had opportunities to work with my students to understand the meaning of education - what it is all about, it is not simply passing on facts...and cultural dislocation has been an integral part of my life....the fact the I cannot teach formally here in alberta does not bother me any more as I am on my journey in life and knowledge is socially constructed...
