Ackerman is hoping to meet with parents, students, fellow teachers, administrators and all interested parties along the way, seeking to learn; "What do our schools need to provide for the next generation of learners?"
By the time she arrives in Victoria to deliver her findings she will have travelled over hundreds if not thousands of kilometres and brought her infectious sense of energy to many communities across the province.
Those interested in her journey can follow along as her progress is tracked, while those along the way can schedule an event to tie in with her arrival in their community and reinforce the message of educational change that she is bringing along with her during the next six weeks. Her StEps website features a listing of her itinerary and when she anticipates arrival each day.
Her pre departure planning was covered by a number of media sources in Prince Rupert:
Daily News-- Ready to roll in support of better education
CFTK TV 7 -- Prince Rupert Teacher ready to begin trek
Communities due east are now making their plans for her arrival, with Smithers waiting for their first Tulani sighting on Monday, while Vanderhoof and Fraser Lake are waiting later in the week.
Rupertites and other interested observers can follow along with Ms. Ackerman by following progress and postings from her website and via twitter while she's on the road.
