An area Early Childhood Educator is a national award winner.
Taylor Lachance from Sainte-Anne Catholic Elementary School in Mattawa was recently recognized with an IDELLO Award, which honours the work, passion and innovation of the Francophone and Francophile educational community in Canada.
Officials say four teachers and educators, including three in Ontario, stood out for their dedication, creativity and commitment to the youth of Canada.
In selecting the winners a jury panel of industry experts assessed a number of criteria, including:
- The relevance and originality of teaching practices
- The promotion of French language and culture across Canada
- The integration of digital and new technologies in education
- Aspects of equity and inclusion
“The IDELLO Awards aim to recognize, reward and value the exceptional work of the educational professional body and to support the development of skills through engaging educational content and activities that foster critical thinking, innovation, creativity, collaboration and communication,” says Julie Caron, Digital Learning Officer, Groupe Média TFO.
Award winners were honoured virtually on March 31, 2021.
