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.
Scott Kirkwood is a teacher at Oaklands Elementary School. Here is what nominator Alex Crisp said about him:
“Scott has taught grade 2 and coached all sports at Oaklands School for the past 20 years . He gives up much of his free time in order to coach. Scott is kind and supportive of all his students. He is retiring in June.”
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.
