About the Community Educator
Amy Cross is a Metis Cultural Coordinator and lives in Cranbrook, BC.
"Amy is fantastic and we're so fortunate to have her visit JVH again. What I most appreciate is the passion Amy brings to the classroom. It is clear to all that Metis education is something that is tremendously important to her. This is reflected in the attention students pay to her when they are with her." - Alastair McKay
