Dr. Snow is a former K-12 Educator and Administrator who has worked in schools around the world as well as at home in Canada. Kathy's diverse research portfolio is unified through the exploration of issues related to the organization of schools and school systems for student success. Her current research includes: an examination of Inuit teacher training, resilience and professional development (funding source: ArcticNet); Mi'kmaq student success and persistence in Nova Scotia (funding source: IURN), Northern perspectives on teacher education (Arcticnet/CIRNA), Inuit Youth Identity development (SSHRC). As a Settler Ally, Kathy's approach is a bricolage of Case Study, Narrative Inquiry, and Community Led Participatory Action Projects to support Mi'kmaq and Inuit teachers to (re)vision schools and learning designs that are reflective of community goals, values, and approaches.
