First Nations Education
Aboriginal Language and Culture Workers, positions held by CUPE employees in each school, are vital for Aboriginal Education in the Stikine. These employees have a variety of responsibilities. The central focus for the L&C Worker is to support the classroom teacher in increasing relevant aboriginal content in the classroom through integration with regular curricular outcomes. Providing opportunities for learners to improve their language and enhance their knowledge of their traditions and culture is very important while also supporting other activities that help to meet the goals of the Aboriginal Enhancement Agreement. Acting as a liaison between school and community resource people is also essential. In addition, this worker may support students and families when the needs arise.
