WATERLOO, ON, Sept 26, 2018 /CNW/ - OTIP (the Ontario Teachers Insurance Plan) is pleased to announce that Debbie Pielechaty, Guidance Secretary at Robert Bateman High School, is the recipient of the first OTIP Support Staff Worker Award for her contributions to public education and student success.
The entire spectrum of publicly funded education relies on a diverse team of individuals. Every person on that team plays a key part in ensuring safe, clean and welcoming environments for learning, and in equipping Ontario's students with the knowledge, skills and sense of community they need to succeed in a rapidly-changing world.
Debbie, referred to as the face of Robert Bateman by her colleagues, is a mainstay for generations of staff and students who have worked and graduated from the Burlington high school. Her dedication to her job, combined with her kind and caring nature, has left an indelible mark on the lives of everyone she has touched throughout her 20-year career.
"The OTIP Support Staff Worker Award seeks to recognize and acknowledge the integral part that educational support staff workers play as vital members to the education team, and to student success," says Vic Medland, CEO of OTIP. "Congratulations to Debbie for this well-deserved recognition!"
Creating Insured Members for Life. At OTIP (www.otip.com), we not only understand the education system, we believe in it. Across all lines of insurance, OTIP provides coverage to more than 200,000 education employees in the province. Owned by Ontario's four education affiliates (AEFO, ETFO, OECTA and OSSTF) and directed by a Board of Trustees, OTIP was built on the belief that educators would be better served by a not-for-profit insurance advocate that was part of the education community. This remains our philosophy today.
