Meet a Grad Student: Ixchel Bennett

This month’s "Meet a Grad Student" profile features Ixchel Bennett, a 2nd year student in the Indigenous Education PhD Cohort. Ixchel is interested in Indigenous teacher education programs that support communities in obtaining a Bachelor of Education degree and becoming OCT (Ontario College of Teachers) certified. “Representation in schooling is important, having a space where you are heard and understood is important, having the opportunities to explore who you are and where you are from is equally important for future generations,” Bennett says.
