The Canadian Family 2nd Annual Great Teacher Awards

Over the past year, we put out the call on our website and in the pages of this magazine, and the nation responded. Nominations — hundreds and hundreds of them — poured in from every province, singing the praises of Canada’s finest teachers. We had a very difficult time choosing the best of the very best, so our editorial team enlisted the invaluable help of an expert panel of principals and teachers, including both new and long-serving educators, with, collectively, 93 years of educational experience. Together with these experts, we have selected three national winners, teachers who clearly go well beyond the call of duty in the service of students and their education. As you’ll see, this year’s winners combine the vigour of youth and the wisdom of experience. Here they are: Canadian Family‘s 2nd Annual Great Teacher Awards recipients.

The Great Start – Heather Titley

The Inspiration – Antonietta DeSantis

The Catalyst – Brad Dowler
