Recognizing An Outstanding Teacher: Twenty-three teachers and two education partners from across the province recently received Education Week Awards for the important role they play in guiding students in the area of media literacy. Lt.-Gov. J.J. Grant and Education and Early Childhood Development Minister Karen Casey presented the awards at a ceremony in Bedford. This year’s theme for Education Week was Media Literacy: Empowering Critical Thinking in a Digital Media World. It recognizes educators who are helping students develop the skills they need to understand, create, and critically interpret text in print, on screen, and in digital format. These champions are also teaching students how to be respectful, ethical, and responsible digital citizens. We are very proud to announce that one of our teachers, Ms. Lorna Bennett (grade 9 English teacher), was one of the teachers to receive this award. Congratulations Ms. Bennett for your outstanding work.
Ms. Bennett is in the middle.
