Dawne Marie Aune
Dawne Marie Aune thinks girls in vocational programs get a raw deal from the education system. Determined to do something about this, she turned the cosmetology program at Bowness Senior High School in Calgary into a retail business and showed her students how they could get personal and professional fulfilment in this field. Before undertaking this latest challenge, Ms. Aune pursued a teaching career that began in social studies and quickly branched out into curriculum reform. She took a leading role in implementing new curriculum and played a major part in helping her colleagues adapt to change. This enthusiasm and drive continues today – Ms. Aune now teaches 400 students in grades 10, 11 and 12 with the help of only one aide.
