Extended Studies Diploma Program, 1983
Angela Flumerfelt has served in the public school system for over thirty years, both as a classroom teacher and as a literacy support teacher. Since 1982, Angela has been affiliated with Simon Fraser University, when she completed her Extended Studies Diploma Program in the Faculty of Education. In 2004, she became a Faculty Associate in the Professional Development Program (PDP), supporting pre-service teachers; subsequently, she supported recertifying teachers as a Faculty Associate in the Professional Qualification Program (PQP). PQP is challenging as this program is for immigrant teachers who are re-certifying to become teachers in BC. Angela did an excellent job in encouraging, mentoring and preparing these teachers for success.
Angela joined the Friends of Simon Tutoring Project in 2008 and is currently one of the Project Coordinators. Friends of Simon Tutoring Project (FoS) is an award-winning Project supported by the Faculty of Education, Simon Fraser University. The Project, launched in September 2006, recruits, prepares, and assigns university students as tutors in Metro Vancouver, serving mostly new Canadian Kindergarten to Grade 12 students. Together with partner schools and community agencies, FoS is a great example of Community Engagement which increases students’ success through after-school programs in small-group and individualized settings.
Angela is a strong proponent of public education with high regard for professional standards and ethics. She never hesitates to try out new ideas, and she consistently demonstrates reflective and self-evaluative skills. Angela designs and delivers a wide range of creative learning opportunities. She is self-motivated and driven to learn and gain new skills. She willingly gives her time, talents, and experience to others in the educational community.
In her spare time, Angela loves to ski, hike, kayak and bike ride. She also enjoys potting and seeking out adventure travel.
