OUR MONTHLY WINNERS
Every month we pick a random registered user who re-visited the site in the previous month and give them a $100 gift card. That's right, just by visiting us, and logging in, you too are eligible for our monthly prize drawing.
Kelly Anderson, our January winner, is a teacher with the Centre de services scolaire du Littoral. She began teaching in Mecatina School, in the lovely community of La Tabatiere, on Quebec's Lower North Shore, in 2004. She met and married her husband after she moved there, and since she was originally from this community, it felt nice to be home. Kelly has taught all grade levels and nearly all subjects in her career, but her field and passion is Secondary English Language Arts. In August of 2022, she became a Pedagogical Consultant for the CSSL, responsible for all grade levels, primary and secondary, and all subject areas, with the exception of French, Math, and Science and Technology for the English Sector and she is loving her job immensely!
Kelly adds, “ I love nature and spend a lot of time outdoors, or camping with my husband. In addition, I am also in the process of completing an undergraduate degree in French as a second language, which I am also enjoying quite a bit. I believe learning is a lifetime endeavor, and I am definitely a life-long learner!”
Jennifer Borenstein, our February winner, teaches at Margaret Manson Elementary School in Kirkland, a part of the Lester B. Pearson School Board. This year she has a Grade 4/5 blended class and a Grade 5 class. On receiving the news of her win she wrote, “ Wow I’m so excited, thank you so much. I love helping students find their love for learning. Changing the way you deliver your lesson to enhance a child’s opportunity to learn and understand new concepts is one of my favourite things to do. Learning should be fun, engaging and challenging all at once! I absolutely LOVE what I do.”
Kelly & Jennifer each received a one-hundred-dollar gift certificate from Indigo/Chapters as the LCEEQ Website prize winner for the month. Winners are chosen at random from those logging into their LCEEQ account. Follow their example and check into your account regularly and we may see your name as the winner in the coming months.
