New Staff Enter as Seasoned Members Take a Well Deserved Rest

Posted on October 4, 2016

The Fort Heritage Precinct is temporarily closed. For more information, please click here.

 

We welcome back some familiar faces, and some new faces. Everyone looks forward to meeting all the schools coming out this season. Joseph Wood has stepped into the position as our permanent Program Assistant over the summer months. We welcome back Glen Buchan and Brianna Nadin-Leal, and welcome Al Stewart, Mellisa Larouche, Marg Elliott, and Khalehla Litschel our newest casual Program Assistants.

We are excited about the variety of skills and experience of our team this season. Experiences range from teachers to historians we even have in the mix a retired parole officer. We will leave it up to you to try and figure out who has what experience. While a rest is well deserved, we are happy that Glen is only reducing the amount of time with us. He will occasionally be around when he isn’t off travelling the world and enjoying his retirement. We also would like to wish Jessica Weller a great year of studying as she sets to complete her masters on the west coast.

"The tour of the Precinct was really interesting and very engaging for the children. There were so many hands on activities for them to participate in that they were always engaged. I love that they are allowed to touch and explore many of the items around the precinct. That makes such a difference to keep them engaged, on task and motivated. The learning connections between what we talked about in school and what we saw were evident in the conversations between the kids and the interpreters."
