Congratulations to Sarah Dmytrow, a Grade 3 teacher at Alexander Kuska Catholic Elementary School, who was recently named Teacher of the Year in an online competition.
Mrs. Dmytrow was nominated for the Pay it Back Teacher of the Year Award by Jessica Torres, whose daughter Jade is in Mrs. Dmytrow’s class. In her nomination form, Mrs. Torres spoke very highly of the many ways in which Mrs. Dmytrow goes above and beyond with the students in her classroom, and about the love her daughter has for Mrs. Dmytrow.
“Mrs. Dmytrow has truly awakened Jade’s sense of self-worth and wonderment in learning,” says Mrs. Torres. ”For the first time ever Jade has been wanting to read on her own, to us, and out loud. Before being in Mrs. Dmytrow’s class, this would have never happened.”
The Pay it Back Teacher of the Year Award was created by Frank Nelson, who is battling cancer and wants to give back to the community in the time he has left. Mr. Nelson travelled to Welland recently to present Mrs. Dmytrow with a cheque for $1,000.Good News
