LIA'S MESSAGE:
Hello All,
Partners in Learning Canada is all about providing teachers and school leaders tools and resources that support transformation in the classroom. However, none of it would be relevant without the incredible teachers that make it happen – teachers who take risks day in and day out to give students engaging and meaningful learning opportunities. This month, we celebrate and honour Canada’s best. Please join me in congratulating the Canadian delegation to the Microsoft Education Global Forum in Barcelona, Spain from March 11 to March 14, 2014.

Lia De Cicco Remu
Director, Partners in Learning Canada
