The question of how to serve Aboriginal students in educational institutions that have sometimes been seen as a source of harm is a potent one. And it’s one the Faculty of Education’s Aboriginal Teacher Education Program (ATEP) addresses head on.
Sometimes, teachers inspire their students in remarkable ways. For many students at Edmonton’s Archbishop MacDonald High School, that teacher was – and always will be – Christine Klein.
Christine, who taught at the school for most of her career, graduated from the University of Alberta in 1986 with a bachelor’s degree in secondary education. In November 2012, she passed away from pancreatic cancer.
