If a doctor, lawyer, or dentist had 40 people in his office at one time, all of whom had different needs, and some of whom didn’t want to be there and were causing trouble, and the doctor, lawyer, or dentist, without assistance, had to treat them all with professional excellence for nine months, then he might have some conception of the classroom teacher’s job.”   -Donald Quinn

A portion of proceeds from all coaching, courses and workshops is donated to Shannen’s Dream. Shannen Koostachin was a youth education advocate from the Attawapiskat First Nation in Ontario. She advocated for safe, comfy schools and culturally-based education for First Nation Children. She passed away in a car accident in 2012 at the age of 15. Shannen’s Dream supports reconciliation and equitable funding in education for indigenous children in Canada through the First Nations Caring Society.

In 1988 I had the opportunity to visit Attawapiskat as part of a school-exchange program when I was a grade 8 student. We witnessed the devastating effects of the legacy of colonialism. Many First Nations schools receive less funding per student than provincial schools, and zero dollars for things like libraries, computers, languages or extracurricular activities. Inequitable funding often results in unsafe learning environments that may pose serious health concerns, including mold contamination, high carbon dioxide levels, rodent infestations, sewage, and inadequate or lack of heating. In fact, the new school built in Attawapiskat in 2012 replaced the previous school that had been built on contaminated ground (a diesel spill) and was deemed a serious health hazard.

On that trip, we also witnessed the resilient spirit of the people of Attawapiskat, of which a young woman like Shannen is just one example. The impact of that trip has stayed with me. Reconciliation is a journey that has just begun for Canada.
