Shelayne Hanson (CA)
Shelayne Hanson has been an elementary school educator in Nova Scotia for over 25 years. Grandparents and great-grandparents on both sides of her family spoke Gaelic, but as in so many families, the language was not passed on. Her appreciation of her own heritage deepened through her daughters' learning experiences, and Shelayne supports her girls in sharing the traditions of their Gaelic heritage with others through music and education.
