CG Education Executive


CCGE's ambassador


It was fate when Manitoba geography teacher Connie Wyatt Anderson first met Beth Dye on Parliament Hill four years ago. Wyatt Anderson was in Ottawa training to become a teacher-leader for the Library of Parliament — she gives workshops on parliamentary democracy in her home province — and Dye, then chair of the Canadian Council for Geographic Education (CCGE), was about to lose her Manitoba representative.

Since then, Wyatt Anderson has served as the CCGE’s representative for Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Nunavut. In November, she was named chair of the CCGE, replacing Dye, who stepped down after six years of service.

“I was honoured,” says Wyatt Anderson. “What a great thing to be able to spread the word of geography across the country.”

Wyatt Anderson has taught high school geography and history on the Opaskwayak Cree Nation near The Pas, Man., for 19 years. She has written educational material for Historica and Statistics Canada, as well as The Canadian Atlas Online, which, over the coming year, will add lesson plans for several new thematics, including watershed management, forestry and the War of 1812. The atlas’s lesson plans reach, on average, more than 750,000 students annually.
