Sue Staniforth brings over 25 years of experience as an educator, curriculum developer, evaluation consultant, and capacity-building specialist for non-profits, educators and communities.
She has developed learning resources on topics that range from biodiversity to action education to sustainable transportation, including the recent Wild BC/Parks Canada resource Get Outdoors! She has worked with First Nations groups doing curriculum development (Chemainus, Songhees, Gitga’at, Haisla, Heiltsuk, Kitasoo/Xiaxias First Nations) and has recently facilitated community consultation meetings for the ‘Namgis First Nation in Alert Bay.
As a very experienced evaluator, Sue has worked for over ten years as the lead evaluator for Green Street, a national initiative supporting non-profits across Canada, funded by the McConnell Foundation. She has evaluated programs at the regional, provincial and national levels for organizations, non-profits and governments. She has also been a facilitator and trainer for Wild BC for the past 16 years, and has designed and facilitated hundreds of professional development, youth engagement, evaluation and community learning workshops.
Sue is an avid hiker, kayaker, dog, cat and chicken owner and gardener, and is lucky enough to work out of her home in North Saanich, on Vancouver Island. Her propensity to laugh and her love of wild places has served her well as she has become one of the pre-eminent educators, communicators and evaluators in the environmental community in Canada. GAEL looks forward to any and all opportunities of working in collaboration with Sue.
