Warmest Wishes

Wishes

LCEEQ wishes you a very happy holiday season followed by a year filled with health, contentment, lots of laughter, a few good surprises, and a chance to finish (or start) that project you've been meaning to get to but simply haven’t had the time because of your hectic schedule.

We hope you have a chance to enjoy some special time with family and friends – to relive those favourite stories and create new ones.

LCEEQ looks forward to continued support of the English Educational Community in the year ahead.

Special Mathematics Professional Development Sessions Continue

Math

The Math Focus Project continues to build positive momentum.

To date most participants have been Elementary teachers as the initial design was for the Elementary level. Last summer saw a successful pilot project which included a dedicated group of Grade 8-9 Math teachers.  This summer the intention is to invite more secondary teachers to enhance the transition across the levels.

Mark the date on your calendars – January 29, 2019. We will be holding an online information session particularly aimed at Secondary Principals and teachers as part of the process of recruiting participants for Cohort 5. If you are interested in attending the information session on January 29 and/or participating in the Summer Institute 2019 you are encouraged to let your Math Consultant know without delay as there is a limited number of places available in Cohort 5 so School Boards/Associations will be given quotas. If you have any questions your Math Consultant is ready to help you.

Learn more about the institute here and more about the special session here.

October and November Winners

Monthly Winner

Donald Kerr is a Physical and Health Education teacher at Massey-Vanier High School in the Eastern Townships. He has taught at the school for eleven years. Donald enthusiastically states, “Teaching Physical Education and coaching sports teams remain my passion. I've coached basketball, hockey, golf, soccer, and softball over the years and am happy to be involved with such a great organization.  ‘Nothing is more important than health’ is my slogan. I am an avid promoter of physical activity and the benefits it can bring to everyone; from mental and physical health to academic success. Physical activity is the greatest pharmaceutical out there and should be incorporated daily across every School Board and school to encourage student success”.

This attitude certainly is positive as LCEEQ focuses on wellness with the theme of the Annual Conference in February 2019 being Well Being – Being Well!

As the LCEEQ prize winner for the month of October, Donald received a one-hundred-dollar gift certificate from Indigo/Chapters.


Kohl Kelso is a Grade 4 French Immersion teacher at Voyageur Memorial Elementary School which is part of the Cree School Board. On hearing of his random selection as winner for the month of November, Kohl responded, “Kwey! This is my third-year teaching and second at VMES. Before making the big move to Mistissini, I worked as a supply teacher at the Eastern Townships School Board. I am originally from the Eastern Townships and a graduate of Bishop’s University.  I am in the process of applying to McGill’s Graduate Certificate in Educational Leadership. When I’m not teaching, I enjoy spending time with friends and family and travelling. Thank you/Merci/Agoodah!

Kohl will be able to pick up some good reading material using his one-hundred-dollar gift card from Chapters Indigo which he won just by logging into his LCEEQ account. In the new year, resolve to visit your LCEEQ account frequently and maybe you, too, will be the lucky winner chosen at random in the months to ahead..
