CASSEL, Pearl Georgina (née PAGE,) M.Ed.
on July 3rd, 2007, age 75, of heart failure after a long battle with illness. Teacher, traveler, guidance counselor, author, naturalist, public speaker, patron of our native artists, cruise ship lecturer, photographer, fisherwoman, mother and grandmother. Born in Bengeo, England, Pearl studied science at the Universities of London and Southampton after turning down a scholarship that would have required her to study education. After three years in research pharmacology, her thirst for travel and adventure took her to North America, where she hitch-hiked through 40 states before serendipitously landing a short term teaching position in Toronto. Ironically, the experience discovered a passion for pedagogy that began a 35 year career in which she taught all elementary and high school grades, earned a Masters of Education at the University of Toronto and a Parent Education Diploma, and became a founding director of the Alfred Adler Institute of Ontario. With Doctor Rudolph DREIKURS, a colleague of Adler, she co-authored Discipline without Tears, a teacher and parent guide to managing primary school pupils through understanding motivation, which became an international bestseller translated into several languages. Pearl went on to author Why Kids Jump Over The Moon (Winner of the Elmer Huff Award, Ontario School Counselors Association) and, with co-author Doctor Raymond CORSINI, The Challenge of Adolescence (Writers Award, Federation of Women Teachers' Associations of Ontario) and Coping with Teenagers in a Democracy. The success of her books and her love of helping others resulted in invitations to deliver over 1000 keynote speeches and workshops throughout North America, including most of Canada's major universities and many remote locations where she introduced Adlerian, democracy-based teaching approach to First Nations educators. Pearl developed a deep appreciation for native art and relationships with native artists, including the Hunts in British Columbia and Goyce Kakegamic, for whom she helped to arrange an airlift of his work when his studio was threatened by forest fire. Following her retirement from the public school system, Pearl alternated residences in Toronto, Florida, Victoria and Vancouver and reapplied her skills to guiding and educating adults on cruise ships. Greatly distressed when she became unable to continue cruise ship lecturing, she applied her characteristic determination to find other venues in which to contribute to the community: providing telephone support to the housebound through community care; organizing trips and events for her residence and local clubs; and, in her last year, returning to assist in a local elementary school, which she found as rewarding as any of the experiences in her rich life. Pearl is survived by son Paul and granddaughters Camille and Celeste in Toronto and niece Linda in England. A celebration of Pearl will take place in the banquet room at 1880 Valley Farm Rd., Pickering, where she lived, on Friday, July 20th from 3: 00 to 5:30 p.m. Donations in lieu of flowers may be made to the Pickering Naturalists, Box 304, Pickering, Ontario. L1V 2R6 or the Adlerian Psychology Association of British Columbia 230-1818 W. Broadway Vancouver, British Columbia V6J
