AVS Staff Champion!

Indigenous Support - Community Engagement Worker


Ey Swayel/Tansi/Halu (Hello families),  
 
Abbotsford School District is located on the traditional and unceded territory of the Stó:lō people, the Semá:th First Nation and Mathxwí First Nation. With this, we respect the longstanding relationships that Indigenous Nations have to this land, as they are the original caretakers.  
 
I’d like to introduce myself; I am Danielle Hil. I am of Metis descent. I am pleased to be working with AVS as the Indigenous Support Worker. The Indigenous program supports self-identified First Nations, Métis, and Inuit students. Some of the ways I am will be supporting the students will be in-person, individually, and in classrooms. I can offer support for students’ academic needs, learning about diverse Indigenous cultures, and social and emotional well-being. Together we can build a program that meets your child’s needs. If you have any gifts or talents that you would like to share with the students, please let me know. These are always appreciated. I can be contacted by email danielle.hill [at] abbyschools.ca or phone 604-859-1224 or my cell 604-768-8148
 I look forward to hosting events, sharing teachings, and going on adventures with all students (again, your input is appreciated). 
Ey Si:yam, yalh yekw kwe’s hoy \*/ , Thank you very much 
Danielle Hill
