We appreciate our Teachers. Teachers make a real difference in the lives of our young people, their families and our province. Every day in the Public Schools Branch, students discover who they are and who they can become, and this is thanks, in part, to the incredible efforts of our teachers. Teachers are dedicated to the success of every student. They provide stability in attitude and attention to every detail of a child’s life and they understand the profound influence they have on the lives of young people. Each month we are encouraging the nomination of a specific group in our Public Schools Branch family.
Nominating a teacher for an ‘Inspire’ award in February is a great way to recognize them. This month we will highlight the role of our teachers.
Teachers have an important role in supporting student learning and student achievement. They create an atmosphere of well-being, promote community engagement, and they encourage life-long learning. They are valued because they are genuinely committed to helping children learn, have great empathy, show great patience and understanding, and are sensitive to the obstacles facing the children in their care. For many students, their efforts and kindness make the school experience more enjoyable and pleasant.
The ‘Inspire’ award is one way the Public Schools Branch is using to recognize members of our educational community for the inspirational things they do to help us all experience success and make our schools great places to work and learn. Anyone can nominate an employee, student, volunteer, parent or community member; and the criterion for nomination is simple – they just need to have inspired others. To nominate someone, simply take a minute or two to complete the on-line nomination form. Nominees will receive a small PSB recognition package and a note of thanks for contributing to the PSB community. Over 300 ‘Inspire’ Awards have been delivered so far! Thank you for doing your part to nominate deserving candidates.
