From David Spencer's Education Paragon: Helping students develop citizenship, faith, literacy, responsibility and vision
||The Aboriginal and Environmental Education Circle (AEE Circle) |
The Aboriginal and Environmental Education Circle (AEE Circle) e-newsletter was a professional learning and sharing network of educators, teachers, college instructors, university professors, Aboriginal elders and leaders. Through e-mail, educators shared native studies resources, curriculum and teaching strategies that helped Canadian teachers integrate school curriculum with current cultural, environmental and historical contributions of our Canadian First Nations, Inuit and Metis brothers and sisters.

- The Aboriginal and Environmental Education Circle (AEE Circle) was founded on January 2, 2010 during a gathering at the Jack Smythe Field Centre. Co-founders during this gathering were Patricia Chrisjohn, Sharron Huxley, Jennifer Kottick, Mike Millard, Sherri Owen, Rob Ridley, David Spencer and Anthony Templer. During the months that followed, Jo-Anne Absolon, Marc Hogan, Damian MacSeáin and Ian Pettigrew provided guidance for the structure of the organization.
- On June 30, 2012 the AEE Circle was donated by David Spencer and AEE Circle members to the Native Education Association of Ontario (NEAO). From 2009 to May 2014, the Native Education Association of Ontario (NEAO) was led by Marg Boyle and a team of Ontario educators. Special thanks to Marg Boyle, her NEAO Council and three years of leadership, encouragement and support. In May 2014, this association was rebranded to become the First Nation, Metis & Inuit Education Association of Ontario (FNMIEAO) the Ontario Ministry of Education recognized provincial subject association for teachers and educators of First Nation, Metis & Inuit Studies and Native Languages.
