Teacher Advisory Board - Get Involved

What Does the MCYU Teacher Advisory Board Do?

The MCYU in the City Workshops are developed in collaboration with a team of teachers who work with MCYU to ensure that the workshops are engaging experiences for young minds and that the content aligns with the needs of the Ontario elementary school curricular. MCYU is grateful for the commitment of these dedicated educators as their collaboration is critical to the success of MCYU. The panel advises MCYU on the type of topics, choices for interactive activities, and the types of classroom supports that are necessary for optimal teaching and teacher workloads. MCYU would like to extend a great big thank you to these teachers, and all the wonderful educators across the Hamilton Wentworth District School Board who willingly share their valuable time with the MCYU team on a regular basis.
