About the Session:

AUDIENCE: CTS Teachers across Alberta are encouraged to attend.

ARPDC is hosting 4 new High School Collaborative Communities. There is need to balance physical distancing and safety measures with effective pedagogical practices. This can be especially challenging in the areas of: 

  • Science Labs
  • CTS
  • Physical Education
  • Band

We invite CTS teachers across Alberta to join us for lunch to build relationships with other teachers through sharing practice, innovative ideas and stories from the classroom. We will meet virtually, five times during the year for one hour.

Whether you are an experienced teacher or a first-year CTS teacher, come and join in on the conversations.


About the Presenter(s):
Adelee Penner

comes to the Edmonton Regional Learning Consortium having most recently served as an Assistant Superintendent of Schools. Adelee started her career in Manitoba and moved to Alberta in 2005. Her career has evolved over the years through working in several school jurisdictions, in both the private and public system, and from working for Alberta Education supporting school systems in Field Services. Adelee is a passionate lifelong learner. Using the provocation from Seth Godin, "When was the last time you did something for the first time?", Adelee works with others to create a culture for learning that is comfortable taking risks, trying new things and considers alternate perspectives.

Amanda Dorosh

My name is Amanda Dorosh and I have had the privelege of teaching CTS classes for the past 14 years at Redwater School. The nature of teaching CTS in a small rural high school has been exciting, challenging, and rewarding. My CTS focuses are in the MDC and BIT clusters teaching Communications Technology 10/20/30, Design Studies 10, 20, Computing Sciences 10, 20, Information Processing 10, 20, 20 and Business (ENT/MAM) 10, 20.

Kourtney Kerr

I am Kourtney Kerr and I currently teach at Sturgeon Composite High School. I have taught many different courses since I began teaching, but have been consistently teaching Foods 10, 20 and 30 since 2013. I also have experience coaching students for Skills Canada competitions in Culinary Arts and Baking, and for the High School Culinary Challenge at NAIT. Building relationships with the students in my school renews my love for teaching everyday.
