An Icelandic Heritage: The Frame for One Teacher's Service (1946-2006)
Crippen, Carolyn
Interchange: A Quarterly Review of Education, v46 n3 p201-214 Aug 2015
This qualitative research manuscript details a biographical study, which documents the life story of one female teacher, Sylvia May Peiluck, of Gimli, Manitoba, an educator of 45 years. Her Icelandic heritage and her commitment to teach the children of Manitoba created a strong bond, a nexus. What educational changes did she witness during her lifetime and teaching career? How were her Icelandic cultural roots manifested in her life story? How has her involvement in education and her Icelandic heritage been maintained? What will be her legacy? These four questions are addressed within the context of Peiluck's Icelandic tradition and her long teaching vocation in Manitoba, particularly in the New Iceland area.
