Anastasia Butcher


My roots are in the northwestern part of Russia, the territory known as Arkhangelskaya Oblastj (Region), also referred to as Pomorye (which means "on the sea"). I have been a visitor on the traditional territories of Lkwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ peoples, situated on what is now known as Victoria, since late '90s.

I have been working with children and families since 2003, after graduating from the Early Childhood Care and Education program (now known as the Early Learning and Care program) at Camosun College. I continued on my learning journey and completed a Bachelor degree and a Master of Arts degree in the School of Child and Youth Care at UVic. In my research, I focused on exploring experiences of early childhood educators who are new to the field.

I have been working at Camosun College since 2013. I enjoy teaching both online and on campus courses, sharing my experience of working in the field. I feel grateful for exploration, creative thinking and new learning with my students and colleagues. I am passionate about building connections in our field. I co-facilitate a local Community of Practice for early childhood educators. My interests also focus on creating a sense of belonging in the classroom, in the online learning environment and in the field, and engaging in the process of critical reflection with students, colleagues and educators.
