President’s Message


Dear Members and Family Studies Educators,

OFSHEEA is excited for the start of the 2023-2024 school year, and we are here to support the Family Studies community, whether it’s your first year teaching FS or you’re an experienced teacher looking for new ideas. We have resources coming out on Research and Inquiry, a new season of our Podcast coming soon, and we can’t wait to see some of you at our fall conference – Learn, Unlearn, and Relearn.

We also have our AGM coming up in October, which includes some opportunities for members to join the board by running for positions! More information will be coming out soon, but you can always contact us at to get involved.  

I am particularly excited for this school year because I’ll be starting a new role – Assistant Curriculum Leader – at a new school! I know I’ll have some opportunities and challenges this year, and that I will, as always, appreciate the support I get from OFSHEEA, whether it’s resources, mentorship, or connections with colleagues.

I wish the best of luck to all of us starting or trying something new this school year!

Kind regards,

Theresa Aqui, President
