Project Samples

We Walk Each Other Home

understanding global citizenship through an exploration of five themes (as described at educationworld.com-teaching good citizenship): responsibility, honesty, compassion, respect and courage three classroom visits linked to curriculum outcomes, field trips, public service (community) projects, social justice events (peace walks, etc.)three areas of focus: the earth (environment, natural resources), living things (life cycles, food chains, habitats), people (cultural/ethnic groups, history, customs, community structures and philosophies)


Jamie’s work with us was the talk of the school. Teachers were unanimously supportive and commented that they could see an increase in student’s confidence and creativity. One of the most noticeable benefits was the way students became interested in another’s stories. Younger students were paired with older students in an exchange that led to meaningful improvement in school and community spirit.
