Windsor teacher honored by her peers

OTTAWA, June 17, 2011 /CNW/ - A teacher at école élémentaire St-Edmond in Windsor has been honoured by the Association des enseignantes et des enseignants franco-ontariens for her exceptional contribution to French-language education and the teaching profession.

Micheline Duguay-Lévesque was given the Mérite franco-ontarien en éducation, an honour bestowed annually by AEFO to two of its members.

For many years, Micheline Duguay-Lévesque has enriched the life of her students and colleagues at school by organizing many activities which aim to develop a sense of belonging and cultural pride. She has done pioneer work in the field of immigrant integration, allowing many students to better adapt to their new life in Canada. Her dedication has led her to direct a workshop on welcoming immigrants for the Ministry of Education.

Micheline Duguay-Lévesque is also a natural-born organizer. She works tirelessly at involving students in school and extra-curricular activities. She has coached numerous sports teams and is also involved in Idole en Essor, a local French-language singing contest.

Micheline Duguay-Lévesque has been an enthusiastic school representative for many years, and a passionate advocate for the teaching profession.

"Micheline Duguay-Lévesque's dedication to the students, her imaginative ideas, her generosity and her capacity to inspire her colleagues has created a culture of sharing and co-operation at her school, says AEFO President, Benoit Mercier. Mrs. Duguay-Lévesque is an inspiring role model for all who aspire to a teaching career."
