Update from Halifax Teacher of the Month Winner

by John McKiggan

Our November teacher of the month winner was St. Joseph’s A. McKay teacher, Christina Cann. Christine Cann teacher of month Christina recently sent us an update to let us know how she spent the Staples gift certificate.

“I was able to purchase a colour printer and scanner for my classroom! We only have a black and white copier in the school and the kids really respond well to colour prints. Also, now I can scan a document and display on LCD for all the kids to see rather than holding up the small copy. It was on sale from staples for $49 so it was perfect!

Younger students (and especially primary level students) need a lot of visuals and picture references. The colour printer will help with that. High schools and other schools may have the document readers and fancier equipment, but in some elementary schools they are hard to come by so that is where the scanner will come in. It is also wireless, so I plan to share that with the other classes on the same floor as my class.”

It is wonderful to see the award is being put to such good use. Thanks for the update Christina!
