2000 Contest Entry
My mother, Sheila Francis is my role model for many reasons.
My mom went to St F.X. University so she could be a teacher in our community. My mom had our oldest brother two weeks after college graduation.
I am proud of my mom because she is a good mother. She puts all her energy into being a good mother. She takes just me to town so we can have mother/daughter time.
She takes good care of me when I am sick. My mom takes me to new places so I can learn about new places and things. She takes me to Pow Wows so I can learn more about my culture. She wants me to be a polite person and always wants me to do my best.
My mom has had interesting jobs. Now she is a Mi'kmaq teacher in our school so the elementary kids can learn Mi'kmaq and keep our language alive. She also taught in Frank H. MacDonald school and she has worked in a bank.
She is smart, very smart. My mom always wants to keep educating herself. Last year she took a course in Truro so she could be a Reading Recovery teacher. My mom is beautiful to me. She is my role model because she had accomplished many things as a mother and a teacher
