b'International Womens Day Two inspiring women who #ChooseToChallengeTo mark International Womens Day, were highlighting two HRCE employees who support student learning in two very different ways. Cindy Ng-Ivanoff is a Grade Primary teacher at Basinview Drive Community School who takes every opportunity to build food literacy skills in children. She leads the schools garden where her students plant, tend to and harvest fresh veggies. Youll often find Cindys class preparing simple recipes with the food theyve grown themselves and then creating step-by-step videos teaching others how to do the same.
