ANNIVERSARY BOOK PROJECT
Chalk, Challenge, and Change
Stories from Ontario Women Teachers
Stories gathered from
senior members of
the Retired Women Teachers of Ontario capture the heritage and
of classrooms across the province. The storytellers are all over
90 years of age - some over 100, and their stories take us into the
classrooms of the past. They tell about hiring and firing,
struggles and celebrations, and the rewards of teaching under
conditions that were often challenging. Vintage photos add
another dimension to the book
In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of RWTO, this book honours the teachers who have dedicated so many years of their lives to educating the young people of Ontario.
The publication had its official launch at the Annual Convention.
To order a copy of the book by mail, please send a cheque for $20.00 + $8.00 shipping, payable to RWTO - Book Project,

RWTO ARCHIVES (Archivist Jeannine Renaud)
In 1999 the early records of RWTO were placed in the archives of York University in Toronto, and have been supplemented since then by ongoing transfers. The records, almost five feet of written documents, include minutes of the board, executive, branch and annual meetings, scrapbooks, clippings, photos, reports, correspondence and administrative files. York University has inventoried the documents, and the list is available through the website of the Clara Thomas Archives at: http://archivesfa.library.yorku.ca/...
Access to these records is available through the Reading Room of the Clara Thomas Archives during regular hours and by special arrangement at other times. Staff are available to answer questions from the records, and arrangements can be made to photocopy or digitize documents required to support chapter activities.
Nominations for Executive and Board for 2007-8 positions as advertised
in the November newsletter must be submitted by January 31, 2008.

A major role of the Goodwill Convenor is linked directly to our motto of "Caring and Sharing". Throughout the year she sends greeting cards to our many members who are over ninety years old, and flowers to each one who celebrates her one hundredth birthday. Branches can be of assistance in ensuring that no one is missed by confirming that the ages of their more senior members have been included in the Membership Database. Further information can be obtained from this year's Goodwill Convenor, Mary Jane Finn.
This website has been updated in July, 2006 with new information and
changes including the new Board and activities. As always, suggestions for ways to improve our
website and our printed newsletter are welcomed Please send
suggestions to the Provincial Office, at the address provided in
Directory. The RWTO toll-free
phone number is 1-877-607-6696. The phone number, e-mail address and
website address are printed on the front page of each newsletter.
