What is Get Connected?

Teachers make a difference and are of great inspiration to others. What strengths can they share? How can they continue to grow in their profession and make a difference? How can they inspire their students? How can they stay motivated? What are they doing in their classrooms?

Pedagogical tools and projects in English

Through its actions, Fondation Monique-Fitz-Back wishes to reach as many young people and educators as possible throughout the province of Quebec. With this in mind, we try to make our services and pedagogical tools as accessible as possible. However, much of our content is still only available in French. We are doing our best to change this situation and offer more bilingual content.

The following educational tools are available in English:

ReelEducation is an educational program that uses film to bring conversations to the classroom around disability, inclusion, empathy, accessibility, mental health, universal design, and more. We teach kids how to identify barriers and how to break them down.

ReelEducation has fully accessible films and lesson plans for K-12 classrooms across Canada and the US and all of our materials are fully accessible, available in English and French, and designed to align with educational curricula in both countries. And it’s free!

Leadership

Be aware.  Get Involved.  Teachers shape the culture of their school / centre.  Many forums exist for your to share your voice and help shape that culture.  Remember: Speak up, your voice matters.

  • Staff Council – Made up of teachers.  Here discussions are had, opinions are shared, and decisions are made about directions the teachers wish to take pertaining to school issues.
  • Governing Board – Be part of a larger community of the stakeholders of your school / centre including parents, students, other staff members, and community members.
  • Union Delegate – Seek out your union delegate.  Even better, become a school / centre delegate.  Remember, the role of the delegate is not to answer all questions or handle all the problems; the union delegate is there to support colleagues and to point them in the right direction should a situation or question arise.
  • School-Level Committees – Contact your union delegate or local union for committees that may be of interest to you
Consult the Education Act (sections 42 – 110.4) for the roles and responsibilities of the Governing Board.

As we evolve throughout our career, we may change positions on this continuum, however we are all part of it. Where do you fall on this continuum?
