We know your planning is underway for MTS PD Day on October 20 and we'd love to see you at an AITC-M event. We'll be running sessions at LIFT in Brandon (details on our Professional Development page) and will have a booth at the Manitoba Social Science Teachers’ Association where educators can stop by and check out our many free resources.

Here are just three reasons to join us during your PD!

  1. Agriculture – we can’t live without it! It is the foundation of life, a pillar of Manitoba’s economy, stewards many hectares of our land and provides us with the food to sustain the health and well-being of our society.
  2. Agriculture connects everyone! Agriculture provides you and your students with the food they eat and the everyday products they use. And many, over 47,000 people, are employed in Manitoba’s agriculture industry which contributes nearly $13 billion to our economy.
  3. FREE Monday-morning ready, curriculum connected resources! We have resources for K – grade 12 that link to science, social studies, geography, career development, health, food & nutrition, ELA, math, art and more! Come and explore our learning kits, videos, gamified learning resources, and programs. Try them out. Take them home. Engage your students. Achieve your curriculum goals.

At LIFT, join AITC-M staff Karen Hill, Curriculum Specialist, Adelle Gervin, Agriculture Careers Exploration Manager; Bianca Byers, Program Coordinator and special guest presenter, Lynn Nicol, Teacher, Crocus Plains High School and AITC-M Teacher Driver Award alumnus. 

We are presenting two half day sessions at LIFT. The morning session is for K - Grade 6 teachers. The afternoon session is for Grade 7-12 teachers — especially those who teach social studies, science, food and nutrition, health, and career development.
