Teachers sharpen leadership skills

49

The school year is over, but the learning hasn’t stopped for some of Nunavut’s teachers.

Dozens of educators — principals, assistant-principals and teachers — are enrolled in a Certificate in Educational Leadership in Nunavut (CELN) program, which started June 28 and runs until July 12.

Enrolled in a course called Proactive Instructional Leadership in Nunavut Communities, are, front row, from left, Catherine Eleehetook, Katharine Bartlett, Kylie Curry, Jason Hatt, Kelli McLarty, Diange Eboa and Brenda Mercer.

The participants are engaged in coursework to “provide participants with the knowledge, skills and beliefs to enable them to lead their schools to become better learning environments,” according to the Department of Education.

An offering of the program also took place in Resolute Bay in February.

This is the sixth year of the CELN program.
