Kate Peters – Vice President
After beginning her French language education in an immersion context at 18, Kate Peters commitment to French second language education has continued to grow. As she related in a recent CPF magazine article, she credits her language learning with her ability to forge strong relationships, manage complexity, and to acquire new skills.
Her relationship with CPF began when she was Deputy Director of the Alliance Francaise of Calgary, and has strengthened throughout her career in Alberta Francophonie. She completed her Master’s thesis on the implementation of the DELF in Alberta Core French programs and she is now working on an EdD in Educational Leadership at the University of Toronto.
Kate’s professional experience includes the role of Deputy Director of the Alliance Francaise of Calgary, Community Liaison Officer for the Francophone Secretariat with the Government of Alberta, and more recently, Director of the Centre collegial de l’Alberta and Academic Administration at the University of Alberta. She has experience working nationally including leading the organisation of the Federal-Provincial-Territorial Ministerial Conference on the Canadian Francophonie.
She feels privileged to have a young Francophile family supportive of community engagement activities and believes that the perspective of a parent would be a valuable asset to the CPF National board. She would be proud to serve the organisation at this exciting turning point in CPF’s history.
