My Students in the Middle Years:
A Resource for Educators and School Leaders

Dear Middle Years Educators and School Leaders,

A smiling young female teacher is standing in front of her Middle Years class and pointing to a student who has her hand raised to answer a question.
One female and two male educators are at a professional learning session discussing student engagement. Chart papers are posted on the wall behind them.

Effective Middle Years education is provided by educators who have a deep understanding of young adolescents and who are committed to meeting the needs of their Middle Years learners.

The Middle Years period is an important time for adolescents in determining school completion and commitment to lifelong learning. As a Middle Years educator or school leader, you make a significant and lasting impact on the success of your learners.

This website provides resources that support your roles and contributions as Middle Years educators, leaders, and role models for your young adolescent learners. In the Educators’ section of this website you will find information and links to resources that support you in your important roles. These resources relate to the provincial curriculum, assessment and reporting, community resources, educational partners, grant opportunities, and professional learning.
