Valerie Trew has been teaching at the University of Guelph-Humber since 2017. Valerie is the Director at the University of Guelph Child Care and Learning Centre in Guelph, Ont. As a Registered Early Childhood Educator with a Master of Arts in Leadership, she also teaches in the Bachelor of Applied Science program at the University of Guelph and the University of Guelph-Humber applying a lens of social and environmental justice to studies in policy, administration, and leadership. Valerie views teaching, from early learning to post-secondary, as a political act and does so with a view to provoke radical social transformation towards a post-colonial world. She has spent 20 years working in children’s services through post-secondary education, regional government, early intervention, and early learning and child care. Holding a certificate in Plant Based Nutrition, Valerie is also passionate about transforming our food systems for human and planetary health and to end oppression.
