Pj is pretty proud of the little cousin she used to babysit. Dr. Sarah Pash not only recently defended her PhD dissertation in Education, but she did it while continuing to raise four children with husband Brian Dioszeghy.

The start of her career was in teaching, and evolved into a passion for education with a special interest in marginalized students. Her dissertation focused on student engagement on reserve schools.

In this interesting interview, we get a slice of Cree culture, of northern education, the students and what challenges are specific to that part of the world.

Sarah Pash is now the Director of Programs at Aanischaaukamikw Cree Cultural Institute in Northern Quebec and makes her home with her family in Chibougamau.
