Teacher Education Resources

The Teacher Education Committee has been created with a core advisory of Masako Fukawa, Greg Miyanaga, Vivian Wakabayashi Rygnestad, and Connie Kadota. The Teacher Education committee Project Director is Mike Perry-Whittingham. The three-year project consists of two key components: development of a Japanese Canadian History Learning Portal; and the creation of a Digital Course for Teacher Training. The Teacher Resources Committee is composed of 17 BC-based teachers, many with Nikkei heritage, from the K – 12 education sector.

Japanese Canadian Legacies are initiatives that honour our elders past and present. We are grateful to be doing this work on the ancestral lands of the Coast Salish peoples.
