McGill University Bachelor’s Degree, Honours in Psychology

Darlene B.

I went to Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia to obtain my Bachelor of Arts Degree after I graduated from a small high school in Manitoba. From there I decided to return to my home province and become a teacher with a Bachelor of Education degree from Brandon University, Brandon Manitoba. After teaching for two years, I knew I wanted to specialize in Inclusive Education and Educational Psychology. The remaining courses and degrees were undertaken on a part-time basis while working as an educator, culminating in a Doctor of Philosophy in Educational Psychology, University of Regina, Regina, Saskatchewan.

I have worked as a classroom teacher, resource teacher, curriculum and program developer, administrator of special education, educational psychologist, consultant for ESL and English Enrichment for First Nations’ Peoples and as a university professor.

One of my highlights as a professor was the mentoring of a bright, graduate student who had severe learning difficulties, winning the Governor General’s award for her thesis for her Master of Education degree. She and I had spent many hours labouring over the task of conceptualizing, researching and writing the winning thesis. It was an honour to work with her to help showcase what remarkable skills people possess and their ability to succeed if given the appropriate supports.

I retired from university life at the outset of Covid but I have continued to work online as a mentor with post-secondary students from across the globe. It is rewarding to meet people from all walks of life and to be part of the exciting opportunities presented through online education experiences.

During the pandemic I also volunteered in my community with the food kitchen and donated face coverings to organizations such as the hospice and local schools where parents were not readily able to pay for the cost of masks for their children. I sewed and donated more than 2500 cloth masks. I strongly believe in the spirit of community and social responsibility.
