Two teachers from the Lester B. Pearson School Board, Isabelle Alarie and Annie Sabourin, were recently honoured with an award from Canadian Parents for French in recognition of their teaching. Pearson School Board, Isabelle Alarie and Annie Sabourin, were recently honoured with an award from Canadian Parents for French in recognition of the quality of their teaching.
Ms. Alarie and Ms. Sabourin have distinguished themselves for many years by the innovative nature of their teaching practices. Whether it is through the Passion Pop project, the use of artificial intelligence for learning or leadership in language acquisition, they place commitment, motivation and authenticity of learning at the heart of their students’ success.
“It’s impossible not to feel pride when our work is recognized, especially since as teachers, that doesn’t happen often. It shows that what we do matters and affects our students in a positive way. The PassionPop project is a project that is very close to our hearts, so this recognition is even more important to me. It motivates me to continue in this direction and to keep innovating to engage my students in their learning,” said Annie Sabourin.
“For me, this award is not a solitary effort. Teaching is about collaboration, sharing, and exchange. It is an experience that is lived with our students, our colleagues, and our community. Learning a language is living it to the fullest, and if I have been able to help others live this experience, I am proud of it,” said Isabelle Alarie.
They received their awards on April 27th at the AQEFLS conference held at the Hyatt Centre Ville in Montreal.
Congratulations Isabelle and Annie.
