Sarah Rosolen, MEd, MSc
South Slave Research Centre (Fort Smith)
I am a generalist, with an interest in working on projects that support community-identified needs. My science background includes environmental science and engineering, with academic and professional experiences related to water management from a community perspective. My passion for a sustainable environment continues to shine through in my work today, with my efforts focused around community-based environmental monitoring and stewardship. My other passion lies in education, both formal and informal. My most recent work related to education evolved from a partnership with researchers from across the country, to examine how we can better support Indigenous learners in the classroom.
