Other Titles: Coordinatrice des parcours français au BEd et chargé de cours


Jody Dlouhy-Nelson (elle/elle; she/her) is an educator-researcher of White prairie settler/colonizer ancestry. She works and studies at UBC Okanagan, on the beautiful, unsold, and traditional land of the Syilx Okanagan Nation. She is a lecturer and the coordinator of the BEd French Pathways. In her role, she prepares teacher candidates to become confident and successful French teachers. 

Jody spent her early French Immersion and FSL career in Saskatchewan school divisions, followed by several years in Central Okanagan Public Schools, and Sea to Sky (SD48) School District. Her career as a K-12 French Immersion, French Literacy and Humanities teacher; a district French Immersion program coordinator; a principal; and a district administrator of International Education recruitment/marketing was rich with language/culture learning.  

Jody recently received her PhD in Interdisciplinary Graduate Studies, with her focus in illuminating how beginning teachers create decolonizing and Indigenizing spaces for their students in this Place of the Syilx People. Her dissertation is available on the UBC library website. She was involved as a research assistant on the Co-Curricular Making: Honouring Indigenous Connections to the Land, Culture and Relational Self SSHRC partnership grant in the Okanagan School of Education. Throughout this time, she has worked closely with supervisor and mentor, Dr. Margaret Macintyre Latta, and mentor, Dr. Bill Cohen.
