Jodi Dueck-Read is a facilitator, instructor, social activist, and researcher. In her new role as Director of Practicum at Menno Simons College, she is excited to liaise with local nonprofit organizations, assist students as they seek a fulfilling internship, and consider new experiential education possibilities. In addition to teaching courses at Menno Simons College and Canadian Mennonite University, she is a trained facilitator with Walls to Bridges and hopes for in-person opportunities to teach inside and outside students.

Prior to re-locating to Manitoba, Jodi lived and worked at the US-Mexico border where she was Associate for Migration and Peacebuilding with West Coast Mennonite Central Committee (MCC). She also worked with MCC in Santiago, Chile and Santa Cruz, Bolivia. She enjoys teaching adult students, speaking Spanish, and participating in actions intended to provoke social change.
