Teacher Stories

Wendie Poitras


“Teachers are part of what makes students successful. We’re helping to raise the next generation and build our future.”

Wendie Poitras has one goal—to be a good role model. Growing up in Halifax’s north-end, Wendie wants her African-Nova Scotian students to have a teacher that represents them and their community. For her 15 years as an elementary school teacher, Wendie believes that her biggest impact can be seen outside the classroom. When a kid succeeds, she succeeds.
