recently retired after 35 years as an educator with Edmonton Public Schools. During that time she taught at elementary, junior and senior high, was a behaviour consultant, a principal at a variety of schools and spent time seconded to both Alberta Children's Services and Alberta Education. Here her work focused on supporting students and families who are vulnerable and creating welcoming, caring, respectful and safe learning environments. During her last secondment Caroline's main area of focus was mentoring, including supporting the Alberta Mentoring Partnership and setting up a Corporate Mentoring initiative at Alberta Education. Caroline holds a Masters degree in Educational Leadership and more importantly is a mom and for the last six years, has been a Big Sister, learning about mentoring by 'doing'.
