NRC Outreach Leaders – Tina Storer and Dr. Nadine Fabbi
Education and Curriculum Specialist
Tina Storer, Education and Curriculum Specialist at WWU’s Center for Canadian-American Studies, is a former secondary school English teacher certified in Ontario, Québec and Washington State. She is uniquely qualified to perform outreach due to her professional background and personal experience as a true Canadian-American, having been born in Toronto but spending equal parts of her life on one side of the border or the other. Although her BA is from the University of Toronto and her B.Ed. from the University of Ottawa, her own K-12 schooling took place in Livonia, Michigan. She specializes in developing curriculum materials on Canada for use by American K-12 teachers. The www.k12studycanada.org website, the O Canada! NIE publication, K-12 STUDY CANADA loan-kits and monthly resource notices are all examples of her expertise.
