Judy Halpern, (MEd) a qualified teacher of more than 35 years, teaches in the Faculty of Education at Wilfrid Laurier University. As a former owner of The Magic Suitcase Bookstore, her passion is for extraordinary picture books that teach content through carefully chosen text and illustrations. She is a workshop facilitator for Learning for a Sustainable Future, focusing her work on education for sustainability and environmental education. Judy is also the coordinator for Laurier's Educator and Leadership Institute – Nepal.
The main focus of my extra curricular work is building teaching and leadership capacity in communities globally through professional courses and workshops.
I am the coordinator of the Educator and Leadership Institute - Nepal. Each year I supervise a group of year one Faculty of Education students during their alternative placement in Nepal.
