President’s Welcome

It’s official; winter is here! Our only option now is to curl up with a snuggly blanket and a warm drink (or wine) and wait it out!

This past year the SHETA board strived to connect and assist teachers in navigating these unprecedented times.

The SHETA Board of Directors met virtually in January, March, April, June, September, and November to collaboratively update SHETA’s Purpose and Goals and transition to the Professional Growth Network Renewal scheduled, which rolled out in August. Continued efforts have also been put into updating our website and our Facebook page.  With the current climate in our world, our goal is to support our members by providing resources and opportunities to connect with colleagues virtually through our website and social media platforms.

We were sad to postpone once again our 50th Anniversary SHETA Conference until the fall of 2022. However, we hosted our first-ever virtual conference, which still allowed us the opportunity for a fun day of networking and learning.

SHETA is very proud to see that many Saskatchewan home economics teachers volunteered their time for the Practical and Applied Arts curricula renewal. The strong representation of home economics teachers has helped ensure we have relevant curricula and heard voices. Many of the curricula are now in the vetting and piloting stage. This is an exciting time for teachers as they pilot, vet, and implement the new curricula.

We want to invite teachers from across the province once again to reach out to SHETA if you need assistance, have resources to share, or have suggestions for us to meet our member’s needs better.

Take care and stay warm,

Michelle Hardy

SHETA President
