Our guest in this episode is Dr. Bonnie Stelmach, Professor in the Faculty of Education (Educational Policy Studies) at the University of Alberta. She has been an educational researcher and university instructor since 2006, first at the University of Saskatchewan, and now at the University of Alberta. Her research focus is on parent involvement, primarily concerned with whether and/or how secondary school parents feel in community with their children’s schools. She has a particular interest in rural and northern school contexts, owing to her personal and professional experiences living and teaching in rural and northern Alberta.
