Our teacher is Margaret Black. She began teaching in 2003. Before she was a teacher, Mrs. Black worked as an Editorial Assistant at an educational publishing firm and as a Kindergarten/Primary Educational Assistant.
Each year, Mrs. Black provides us with opportunities to participate in several curriculum-based outreach projects. There are links to our community service projects, by year, across the top of this page.
Mrs. Black has shared our outreach projects with student teachers at Lakehead University, Orillia campus, several times, and will be presenting at a Simcoe Board outdoor education conference in January 2016.
Outside school, Mrs. Black is on the board at Aspen Valley Wildlife Sanctuary, assists three wildlife sanctuaries and the Orillia SPCA with the transport and release of orphaned and injured wildlife, established a fund that has enabled over 190 underprivileged children to attend day camp at the Wye Marsh since 2003, and has been a monitor with the Ontario Trumpeter Swan Reintroduction Program since 2002. http://www.blackdeer.ca/#Conservation_Work
