40% of new teachers in Alberta leave the profession within five years. While this can be viewed as a teacher retention issue, it also means that there are a lot of educators using their skills in various types of jobs, sectors, and industries to make a difference in our community.

Join the UCalgary Education Alumni Network: Beyond the Classroom to hear from education alumni who have pursued careers outside of the school system in the public, private and non-profit sectors. This event will include a panel discussion, followed by Q&A and networking. Our panel includes:

  • Jeny Mathews-Thusoo, BEd' 96 - Program Lead for Resilient Calgary, The City of Calgary

  • Patti Morris, BEd '86 - Executive Director, Wellspring Calgary

  • Cam McNicol, BEd '85 - Co-Founder, Schoolsoft Technologies

  • Moderator: Alicia Adlington, MEd '13 - Distance Programs Coordinator, Werklund School of Education

Please register to attend as space is limited.

Light snacks will be provided thanks to the generous support of the UCalgary Alumni Association and a cash bar will be available. Guests will be welcome to network and explore the Lougheed House's Storied City: Early Calgary Through the Eyes of Writers exhibit following the panel discussion.

Connect with the UCalgary Education Alumni Network: Beyond the Classroom on LinkedIn and Facebook.
