TEACHER TRAINING AT MTIE

Dear Innu;

It took us a while to get the Teacher Assistant Training Program off the ground due to the pandemic but we pushed through and we finished. I want to thank all the students, instructors and our Coordinator, Bernadette Power, for making this possible. Special thanks to Nippissing University who has worked with us to make this happen. 

If we want to do better as a community, we need to want it badly – ALL of us. I truly believe if we want our language, culture and education to thrive we have to want to push it forward in a positive manner. 

With this in mind, MTIE was proud to offer the Teacher Assistant training program to our Innu people. We believe it’s vital to have trained Innu in our buildings to assist and teach our Innu children. This program was offered by Nippissing University and it was the first time Nippissing brought it to a First Nations community. I am very pleased to say that we had a lot of interest from the community. We initially had 10 Innu students in Sheshatshiu and 10 in Natuashish registered in the program.

I am extremely proud to see our own people continue to excel and to further their education to help OUR children. We NEED them. Our CHILDREN need them. Please join us to encourage the new Teacher Assistant trainees and celebrate with them as they start their journey at our schools.

Congratulations to our graduates of the Teacher Assistant Diploma Program!

Nin,

Kanani Davis, CEO

COVID-19 PREPARATIONS

We are all worried about COVID-19. So far, our Innu communities have done a tremendous job of keeping our families safe. At MTIE, we hope to reassure parents and guardians that we have measures in place that are designed to protect Innu students and all school staff members.

MTIE will closely follow all measures laid out by Public Health officials, such as those featured in the above graphic. However, the Christmas season will soon be here. We all know that COVID-19 can only be spread by people who gather together. When sick people travel, they bring the virus with them. Everyone hopes this won’t happen, but if it does MTIE has a plan in place.

If schools close due to COVID-19, MTIE may initiate the following measures:

  1. A) Partial school closure with rotational classes. A schedule will be provided if this occurs. OR,
  2. B) Full school closure with online instruction. 

​If schools close fully and online instruction begins, all students who are REGISTERED and/or CURRENTLY ATTENDING one of our 2 Innu schools will be provided with a laptop OR iPad to take home. Conditions on the use of the take-home technology will be in place, and agreed upon before being sent home.

NOTE: Some teachers MAY prepare take-home packages of classroom material for students.

Thank you for your understanding. Please STAY SAFE!
