Thirty Professional Home Economists met for their annual conference and annual general meeting held on the University of Moncton campus Saturday May 4, 2019.
Four speakers gave a picture of the type of work they are doing and spoke on how their home economics training is helping them daily: Kim LeBlanc, teacher at Polyvalente Louis-J-Robichaud in Shediac, shared her teaching experiences whether it is for the compulsory grade 9 and 10 courses in ‘Formation personnelle et sociale’ (Personal & social Development) or the optional courses: clothing & textiles, family relations, etc. Tamara Richard, a teacher at Leo Hayes High School in Fredericton, presented an overview of the compulsory high school courses offered in the anglophone schools plus her experience teaching Culinary Arts to five classes this year proving it is a very popular course at her school.
Caroline Thibodeau explained the services offered by the employees at the NB Family and Early Childhool Agencies. Marie-Pier Bérubé, youth counselor at Centre Pierre Caissie in Moncton, explained the different services offered at this Center. It was a very informative conference allowing the participants to attend to the business of the Association, as well as time to socialize. A special thank you to the Organizing Committee for a very successful day.
