  • The Adelaide Hoodless award recognizes the vision of Adelaide Hoodless and the outstanding contributions she made to the profession. Please join us in congratulating 2020 Adelaide Hoodless Award recipient, Dr. Roula-Hawa-Kteily. 

Dr. Roula Hawa-Kteily served on the @OFSHEEA Board of Directors for close to a decade where she shared her expertise as an editor for the 2016 Financial Literacy Units writing project. 

She was a lead writer for the 2007 release of the Ontario Social Sciences and Humanities curriculum and participated in the 2013 revisions.

As a department head & teacher in @yrdsb.schools, Roula showed her passion for family studies as Co-Chair for the Healthy Schools Committee. For 4 years, she led numerous seminars and PD sessions for social science and family studies educators. 

Roula also helped organize the @ifhe_homeec symposium in honour of the 20th Anniversary of the International Year of the Family at @bresciauc. 

Many family studies educators have been taught by her as she was a lead Family Studies AQ instructor @queensuniversity and has taught courses on contemporary families and diversity in Canadian families at Ryerson University. 

While our esteemed recipient was kicking butt as an educator and curriculum writer, she was also working on her Ph.D @oiseuoft. To date, she has published 15 peer-reviewed journal articles.

Dec 2019, she was hired @thompsonriversu as an adjunct professor, where she now mentors and inspires students in the Faculty of Education and Social Work. 

Congratulations, Dr. Roula Hawa-Kteily!
