Just got teary @ #ARA2017 when thanking @Nancyba1 for her long service to the teachers of Fort Mac, especially this past year.

I highly recommend that if other student locals have the opportunity to attend that they should do so. So much to take in and learn.
Ms. D’Souza @MsDSouza
Glad that my 1st ARA just so happened to be the 100th meeting. What an amazing experience with @ATALocal29 & @albertateachers et al.
Phil McRae @philmcrae
Professional autonomy is the opening theme at #ARA2017. A great start from @davideggenAB celebrating 100 years of @albertateachers.

Thx AB teachers 4 supporting Catholic teachers & Catholic education in AB.
Teachers are the Association. I saw that this past weekend.
Joel French @JoelFrench
Blakeman’s keystone contribution to #abed is mandatory gay–straight alliances in any AB school students want them. Impressive work.

Excited to engage in reconciliatory learning with @ATAindigenous @albertateachers today at @GreyEagleResort on Tsuu T’ina Nation.
Alberta schools should be encouraging students to make history. That’s why they exist.
Bring back funding for trained school counsellors.
Comments on SLAs becoming optional for teachers
I surely hope the individual districts and administration leave this up to the teachers to decide.
Any chance we can make the PATs optional also!?
Well this is awesome news!
