I am a Literacy Coordinator and Teacher who is passionate about developing strong literacy skills with my students.  I am interested in multiliteracies, educational technology, arts education,  differentiation and social justice.  I strongly believe that all children can be readers if we can find just the right way to motivate and engage them.

    My name is Robert Cutting. I am one of the Series Editors and Authors of Turtle Island Voices. Your comments on our series in combating the “single story” was such a welcome insight! I have mentioned your words in many of my workshops with Teachers, echoing how TIV can give a different perspective to the single story. Many thanks for adding your thoughts! It is appreciated!

      Thank you for your comment. It is an honour to know that you are referring to my post in workshops with teachers. I absolutely love this resources and do my best to promote it with the teachers that I work with. I have worked for several years in schools with high First Nations and Metis populations and would spend a great deal of time searching for meaningful and relevant resources to share with my students. I want them to see themselves represented in a positive and authentic ways and when I saw the TIV resources, I felt excited to share these with my students. All students are engaged and excited to read these books. I hope to see more resources like this!
