Jennifer Fane

Director of Education

She began her teaching career as a kindergarten teacher in the New Westminster School District and has been working in a range of educational settings such as schools, early years centres, and universities in both Canada and Australia for the past 15 years. She is a published author and scholar in the areas of education, early years, and teacher education, authoring over 20 peer-reviewed academic publications and a co-authored book. Her work as a teacher educator has been recognized nationally through the Australian Awards for University Teaching where she was awarded a Citation for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning. 

In her roles as a teacher, teacher educator, professor, and educational researcher, Jenn is keenly aware of the challenges children, parents, and schools alike face in supporting children with diverse ranges of abilities, and the very real struggle this creates for children and families with diagnosed or suspected learning disabilities. Jenn enjoys using her education and skills to support the exceptional work within the organization and serve its students, families, and the broader community.
