April 9, 2015 - The Sudbury Catholic District School Board is committed to supporting our First Nation, Métis, and Inuit students and families. Along with our Aboriginal Lead, Superintendent Rossella Bagnato, and our Aboriginal Support Worker Joel Agowissa, the SCDSB is please to announce that Carla Petahtegoose has joined the board to support our students as an Aboriginal Support Worker in the secondary panel. Carla’s role will be to assist the staff to help our Aboriginal youth gain confidence, increase self-esteem, and help students develop a better understanding of their culture and identity. Petahtegoose will also continue to support classroom teachers by providing cultural expertise and awareness, and work with Aboriginal community partners, parents and families to support Aboriginal student success. Joel Agowissa is happy to have Carla join the team – “We are thrilled to welcome Carla Petahtegoose to our Aboriginal Support team. She comes to us with a wealth of education and Traditional knowledge that will be a great asset to our secondary staff and students”.
