Dedra_Stafford_2 The Saskatchewan Middle Years Association is pleased to welcome Dedra Stafford as our keynote speaker. Dedra is an internationally recognized speaker, author and consultant. Dedra creates entertaining workshops that get crowds energized, motivated, and inspired to be their ‘best’ for the students they serve. As a former classroom teacher, she understands the need for professional development where practical ideas can be implemented immediately into the classroom. You will laugh, learn, and have a new enthusiasm about technology, school climate, curriculum, and classroom techniques in any of Dedra’s sessions.
Annie We are pleased to again offer a pre-conference session on Thursday morning for those that would like a full two days of learning. This year, Annie Battiste will lead a workshop on incorporating the Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action in the classroom. Annie Battiste is a young Mi’kmaw educator from Potlotek First Nations, a community situated in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. She currently resides in Saskatoon as the Indigenous Relations Director for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Saskatchewan. She holds a Masters in Educational Foundations and a Bachelors of Education from the University of Saskatchewan.  We are thrilled to have her share her expertise with us.
