We were pleased to celebrate, Ian Carr, the recipient of the 17th annual Council of the Federation Literacy Award for Prince Edward Island.

As an educator and lifelong learner, Ian Carr has devoted his career to education. Retiring early from the classroom, Ian has worked with Workplace Learning PEI (WLPEI) for over twenty years. Since 2016, Ian has been an instructor at WLPEI's Workplace Essential Skills Program. The success of this program is in no small part due to Ian. When asked what he does, Ian responds that he "teach[es] people confidence". Ian's incredible skills as an educator, wisdom, professionalism, and sense of humour make him an effective learning coach and role model within the classroom. Ian's ability to accurately respond to individual learning needs has helped many learners reach their goals. From Ian's perspective, the world is a classroom rich with opportunities to make learning come alive.
