Ms. Harmony

Oki, Tansi, Umba-wathtich, Danita ada, Aanii, and Hello,

My name is Harmony,  I am so grateful to be joining the Niitistapi school community for the 2021/2022 school year as an Indigenous Education Strategist. I am Métis and I grew up on Anishinabek land, now known as the Chippewa Tri-Council, comprised of Beausoleil First Nation, Rama First Nation, and the Georgina Island First Nation. This territory is within the pre-confederation Treaty 5 and Treaty 16 and included within the Williams Treaties of 1923, located on traditional territory of the Huron-Wendat and the historic Homelands of the Métis.

 I came to Treaty 7 in 2010 and began my journey with the Calgary Board of Education as a classroom teacher and music specialist. I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, cooking, crafting, hiking and exploring.

 

Looking forward to a wonderful year ahead with students, families and staff of Niitsitapi Learning Centre.

My first few days at NLC I have noticed:

Spirt-To Be

Students and staff caring for spirit through daily practice of smudge. Students gather together alongside their teacher and together build strong classroom communities.


“We smudge to start in a good way.” Grade 1 Student

Heart- To Belong

Students and staff at NLC taking time to welcome each other back and extending warm wishes to new friends, building a sense of belonging and community.


“I will show where the washroom is.” Kindergarten Student

Body- To Do

Engagement in playful exploring of their school, classrooms and outdoor spaces.

“I see an ant! Come look!” Grade 1 Student


Mind- To Know

Students are challenging themselves as they engaging in thoughtful learning tasks. 


“I use the beads and count…I have 70.” Grade 2 Student
