Spectrum Learning Centre – SD 39

We have many opportunities for UBC teacher candidates to engage with the community at our school that do not involve formal teaching. We run a daily schedule that involves an agriculture, leadership, lunch program food prep (using food from the garden) and yoga class as well as academic courses. Participants would have the chance to interact with moderate SPED students and our Aboriginal population through community involvement and one-to-one tutoring if they wished.

The Sarah McLachlan music program uses our facility after school at least one day/week and participants could also be involved in this program.
