Teachers experience life-changing opportunities in difficult situations

August 31 2016

The 2010 Haiti earthquake was catastrophic, affecting nearly three million people. This story profiles OCTs from Dufferin Peel Catholic District School Board who went to Haiti as part of their social justice outreach programs. 

When the teachers returned to Canada, they were inspired to start a “milk bag club” where students created mats made of milk bags for Haitians to sleep on. 

Acting on Our Ethics: Caring for Haiti brings to life the ethical standards of the teaching profession – care, trust, respect, integrity – in times of crisis. 

This professional learning resource highlights unique examples of professional learning opportunities that enhance teaching practice.
