Museum London (421 Ridout St. N., London, ON)

Western Education community members had an opportunity to reconnect with old friends and meet new ones as the Faculty of Education, in partnership with Western Alumni, hosted its second annual Teacher Appreciation Event at Museum London.

The event was held at the museum’s stunning Centre at the Forks reception space in May and provided an evening to reflect on and celebrate the remarkable contributions of the faculty’s community, as well as its alumni.

Across the world, there are more than 43,000 people in the Faculty of Education’s alumni family. All of them share the goal of transforming education, transforming lives.

Dr. Claire Crooks, director of the Centre for School Mental Health at the Faculty of Education, was the event’s keynote speaker.

Her presentation, titled, “School Mental Health: The Good, the Bad, and the Opportunity,” shared a vision of comprehensive school mental health, as well as insight on implementing effective resources.

The event also heard from the Faculty’s alumni champion Rhodora Meliton-Vanderpool, Alumni Relations Associate Vice-President Temi Akin-Aina, and Education Dean Donna Kotsopoulos.
