Scott MacDonald, NTA Secretary Treasurer, Joamie Elementary School, Iqaluit NU
Aside from serving in various roles with NTA, I am currently the Vice-Principal at Joamie Elementary School in Iqaluit where I have been since 2017. Prior to moving to Iqaluit I began teaching at Nasivvik High School in Pond Inlet in 2010. I feel privileged to represent the NTA on the PDC as I view quality professional development as a gateway for teachers to become more effective educators, which helps our students become better learners. During my time in Nunavut I have taken advantage of many of the professional learning opportunities the PDC has to offer, and I hope my work with the PDC assists you in doing the same.
Jeffrey Avery, Kitikmeot Regional President, Cambridge Bay NU
I am a long time educator and current administrator in the Kitikmeot region at Kullik Ilihakvik. As a former staff member at the NTA Office, I have been directly involved in the professional development of teachers. In addition to this experience, I have also been a PD conference committee member for regional and territorial conferences, and have represented NTA members in matters of professional development at the regional and national levels. I am looking forward to being a member of the PDC and working to safeguard and make the best use of the NTA PD Fund to benefit Nunavut classrooms.
