HALIFAX, Nov. 6, 2013 /CNW/ - Until November 10, 2013 students in Nova
Scotia have the opportunity to recognize a teacher who has made an
impact in their lives, through the Nova Scotia Teachers Union's Teachers Make a Difference recognition program.
"Teachers continue to reach and meet the diverse learning needs of their
students," says NSTU president Shelley Morse. "They not only work with
the development of children's minds and skills, but also work with
their hearts, hopes and dreams, and we encourage Nova Scotians to
recognize their value."
The program encourages students to nominate a teacher who has made a big
difference in their lives, and contributed to their school and
community, by visiting www.nstu.ca and filling out the contest form. Up to 10 teachers will be chosen for
their contributions to the lives of their students, schools and
communities. For each recognized teacher, a donation of $300 will be
made towards the home school/campus breakfast or library program.
"Despite the many challenges our teachers and Community College members
face they strive to do what is best each day because they care about
their students and public education," concludes Morse.
To date, close to 350 teachers have been nominated. For more
information, please visit www.nstu.ca and click on the "Teachers Make a Difference" button, or banner, which
will bring you to the official contest page or visit teachersmakeadifference.ca.
The Nova Scotia Teachers Union represents more than 10,000 public school
teachers, Community College faculty and professional support staff and
teachers who work for the Atlantic Provinces Special Education
Authority. Since 1895, it has worked to improve the quality of public
education in Nova Scotia.
