In the Business of Creating Good People with Shashi Shergill and Dr. Jodi Latremouille

In this episode, pre-service teachers Rayna Ostapiw and Darby Walters from the University of Calgary’s Werklund School of Education unpack the article Good Neighbours, Good Friends: Promising Practices for Partners in Place with authors Shashi Shergill and Jodi Latremouille:

Shashi Shergill, Assistant Principal of Connect Charter School, and Dr. Jodi Latremouille of Vancouver Island College share stories about a multi-year collaborative partnership between Connect Charter School in Calgary Alberta and Chilla elementary school of the Tsuut’ina Nation. Together, we discuss how to approach education, both at a personal and at a system level, through the lens of social justice and ethical relationality. As part of this conversation, we explore how to build genuine relationships with Indigenous communities, people, and ways of knowing, as well as how to address resistances that can emerge when we engage deeply in this kind of work.
