Anna Farquhar has worked as an Elementary teacher for the last 23 years. During this time she has taught a variety of subjects including French and Science. Five years ago, she moved to a new school named after Lt. General Roméo Dallaire and was fortunate enough to meet her hero. The school motto is “Making a difference in our school, our community and in our world”. This Social Justice motto became the force behind the community projects Anna and her students have undertaken.

In 2014 she was inspired by Cole Galloway, the founder of Go Baby Go, to have her students adapt motorized ride on cars for children with mobility issues. The Seed Grant from the Pollination Project made Go Baby Go Canadian version a reality. The difference this grant has made for her students as well as the recipients of the cars cannot be measured.
