Yep, that’s right.  Good Learning Anywhere has a brand new baby doctor!

And not just any doctor, my friends. 

Dr. Michelle Eady, a leading thinker and advocate of Indigenous literacy in both Canada and Australia, is about to be awarded her Phd.  Not only is she receiving her doctorate, Michelle will be honoured with a blessing from an Elder and will be giving the Valedictorian Speech as well.

Michelle has been with Good Learning Anywhere since it’s very beginnings, and has advocated for literacy for First Nations, Aboriginal, Metis and Inuit for many years.  Michelle envisioned and implemented interactive online literacy classes for SHLC’s Good Learning Anywhere project.

Sadly for us, Michelle has relocated herself and her family to Australia, and though we are poorer for not having her here with us in Ontario, we know that Michelle is spreading the goodness and rightness of literacy for Indigenous people wherever she goes.

Here are some messages from your friends at Sioux-Hudson Literacy Council.

Congratulations Michelle.

ps. Michelle, be sure to share your grad experiences with us.
