Teacher Candidate Georgia Tocheri Wins Award for Demonstrated Excellence as a French Second Language Teacher

Congratulations to BEd teacher candidate Georgia Tocheri (Intermediate/Senior division), winner of the Ontario Modern Language Teachers’ Association “Helen G. Mitchell Award.”

This award honours one graduating student from each Faculty of Education in the province who best demonstrates the attributes of a potentially outstanding Classical/French as a Second Language/International language teacher.

Georgia was nominated by James Steele, Contract Lecturer (Faculty of Education) for her demonstrated excellence in the BEd program courses and practicums, and for applying effective second language methodologies that lead to success in the classroom.

Georgia, who graduates in June and is currently teaching in a Grade 3 French class, notes that “this award is very meaningful to me … my mom and my previous French teachers used to attend the Ontario Modern Language Teachers’ Association conferences. I am so excited to start my career as a French Teacher.”

Congratulations, Georgia!
