How did you hear about us and a few words why you want to join EBB:
I heard about TWB Canada through an email from TWB. I joined because I was doing some searching on the web- I thought if there is a Doctors Without Borders, surely there must be something similar for teachers!
I'm interested in making connections with similar-minded teachers across Canada, and learning more about what I can do to help in areas where teachers are needed.
I consent to receiving important information including news, publications and invitations to programs and events.

Kate i am involved in the Aboriginals for Native Title and Reconciliation in Aust and prior to that published two articles on the Aboriginal Deaths in Custody Royal Commission if that is of any relevance.  During this period i visited Canada and included some of the work your RC was doing - most relevant.  I am not a major player rather a concerned citizen and business person.  I hope this has some resonance. ciao paul

Kate i note your research project well done hope this works out for you esp the diversity angle.

i have also been involved in Aboriginal issues in Aust esp the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody (two articles published) and more recently on justice and reconciliation.  This may link - the status quo has great difficulty in doing anything other than reifying itself.  ciao paul
