Celebrating Staff LogoEvery week we celebrate SMCDSB staff members who have been recognized by a parent, student or colleague.

This week we are celebrating Sandra Batt-Garrocho, a Sandra Batt-Garrocho teacher at Holy Trinity Catholic High School. Sandra was nominated by a student and a colleague who said:

“She believes in her students and makes time for them. She could just do the bare minimum, but she doesn't. Everything about her as a person and teacher is extraordinary. Sandra Batt-Garrocho is a dedicated educator known for her expertise in crafting engaging and innovative lesson plans. As a mentor to all teachers in her department, she provides invaluable guidance and support. Sandra's commitment to sharing resources ensures that colleagues have access to a wealth of materials to enhance their teaching practices. Through her inspiring and motivational lessons, her goal is always to instill a love for learning in her students, both in English and History. Sandra's passion for teaching History and English shines through in her teaching, igniting curiosity and fostering a deep appreciation for the past among her students.”

Becky HassettThis week we are also celebrating Becky Hassett, a teacher at Holy Family Catholic School. Becky was nominated by a colleague who said:

“Becky came as an LTO to our school this year and has blown us away with her dedication to her class. Not only is Becky friendly, kind, and respectful, but she is one of the most organized and responsive teachers. It would be lovely to keep her, but if we can't, whoever is lucky enough to have her as an addition to their staff will be extremely blessed!”

This week we are also celebrating Al Korber, a teacher at Al Korber The Good Shepherd Catholic School. Al was nominated by a colleague who said:

“Al is a kind and generous teacher. He can relate to his students on their level and connect with them. He is a role model for all teachers and staff members at the board. He will go out of his way to help his students develop the basic and fundamental skills needed for their grades and age. He cares deeply for the welfare and developmental skills of all his students.”

We would like to thank Sandra, Becky and Al for their commitment to Catholic education at our board.
