Black Press and Staples, in partnership with Camosun College, are proud to recognize some of the great teachers found here in the Capital Region. We asked our readers to nominate teachers who have gone above and beyond to make a difference in the lives of the students they teach.
Elaine Wooster is a teacher at Oaklands Elementary School. Here is what nominator Erin Kelly said about her:
“She brings out each kid’s strengths and helps them grow into competent young people who are ready for middle school. She is also an engaged Vice Principal and due to her energy and enthusiasm has ensured that Oaklands has raised thousands of dollars for Cops for Cancer. She is truly part of the spirit of the school and, as she retires on May 1, she will be greatly missed,” she said.
Look for our Great Teachers special section running in the Victoria News on June 21, where we will recognize the three teachers selected as this year’s representatives as well as list all of the Victoria and Esquimalt nominees.
