In the coming months, Toronto will be welcoming a huge number of newcomers, many from Syria. I can't help but think about how difficult this will be for these new Canadians, arriving with very little (or nothing) to an unfamiliar place. They have been through so much and will surely need support.

As educators, many of you will be able to provide that support in your classrooms. I have no money to provide support, but I do have time. I am trying to find out the best way to help our newcomers, particularly the youngest ones. Please join me to talk about what we can do, how we can use our skills and how we can maximize our impact to help.
