The Regina Leader-Post visited a grade 2/3 class at Dr. George Ferguson School to see the Roots of Empathy program first-hand:
Seated in a circle, the Grade 2-3 students wait patiently for their teacher.
That’s not to say Ms. Lawson — their classroom teacher is alongside them. Today, nine-month-old Dominic Silzer is leading the class.
His T-shirt indeed spells “teacher,” below a Roots of Empathy logo. It’s that program, new to Regina, that has brought Dominic and his mom, Rachelle Silzer, into the Dr. George Ferguson School classroom.
