A new degree in the family.

As of today, Carole has completed all of the requirements for the Yukon Native Teacher Education Program (YNTEP). On her way home from school -- a four-month student-teacher internship at Hidden Valley -- she picked up a letter from the department asserting that the University of Regina, in conjunction with Yukon College, will confer upon her a Bachelor's degree in Education. The formal ceremony will be in June, but she can begin teaching right away in the territory (and Saskatchewan, for that matter) at the full BEd rate.

Carole's the first person in her family to earn a university degree, and we couldn't be more proud of her.
