The LCEEQ Newsletter - Issue 081 - The It's Cold Outside Edition


The LCEEQ is delighted to be one of the collaborators on a very special event being planned for March 2022. This two-day forum, highlighting the first-school transition is being offered in line with the provincial implementation of the new Preschool Cycle Program. It aims to offer the English Educational Network an opportunity to gain further insight into the impact of the first school transition on the development of young learners.

Read about this new and exciting venture by visiting the Forum website to learn more about the invited speakers, guest authors, and local contributors. For anyone connected to early education this is an opportunity you will not want to miss.

ALDI and QPAT Collaborate on an Information Document for Teachers


At the January LCEEQ Meeting, Heather Scott, Project Coordinator for Advancing Learning in Differentiation and Inclusion (ALDI) and Anne-Marie Rheubottom, Executive Assistant for Pedagogy and Special Needs Students with the Quebec Provincial Association of Teachers (QPAT) presented a recently joint publication entitled, The Role of the Elementary Remedial Teacher.

The document highlights three important roles of the Remedial teacher:

  • To teach students with various learning needs
  • To support students and teachers within the inclusive classroom setting
  • To collaborate with the school team

There is now a document in preparation that will examine the role of the High School Supporting teacher at the Secondary level.

December Winner

Monthly Winner

Meredith Lowry has taught English Language Arts at Joliette High School (SWLSB) for eighteen of her twenty years in the profession. This year she teaches Secondary Cycle II and is also the Resource Teacher. She enthusiastically states, “ I love working at our school! Many people will say they work with the best team, but I really do! We support each other and help each other whenever we can, no questions asked. Working in a small school means that we get to know all the students individually, which is a huge advantage. Coming from a small town myself, and having gone to small schools, including Bishop’s University, I feel I can relate to our students. School spirit is something we encourage and support at our school, and I participate as much as possible. I am the advisor for both the Grad Committee and the school yearbook.”

Meredith received a one-hundred-dollar gift certificate from Indigo/Chapters as the LCEEQ Website prize winner for the month of December, an appropriate prize for an ELA Teacher. Winners are chosen at random from those logging into their LCEEQ account, possibly we will see your name as the winner to start the New Year.
