Our Voices in School

A Toolkit for Inclusive Education


Angela AltomareOn Saturday April 8th, 2017, Angela Altomare,  ESL and Student Success Teacher at Madonna Catholic Secondary School, presented A Toolkit for Inclusive Education at the Voices for Change Conference.


Angela saw this project from its onset in 2012 when the TCDSB accepted an invitation to partner with Pueblito Canada and the Hispanic Development Council, to better support our students of Latino-Hispanic background. Angela hosted a series of workshops at Madonna where students explored and shared their own personal stories about being a part of a new educational system in Toronto, Canada. Students created digital stories that were aired at the Regent Park Film Festival in November of 2012. These were part of a larger participatory process to produce a student driven resource that focuses on improving the learning experience of our LatinX students. Angela was honored to unveil The Toolkit for Inclusive Education, a user friendly resource guide for all educators. The Toolkit provides a wealth of information! It is curriculum-centered, culturally responsive and provides reflective learning and teaching activities.


Congratulations Mrs. Altomare!
