July 9, 2007 - Rosanna Battigelli, a teacher at St. James Catholic School in Lively, has been awarded a Best Practice Award from the Ontario English Catholic Teachers Association (OECTA) for an essay she wrote highlighting her teaching experiences dealing with loss, grief and healing, and the support systems she developed within the classroom and school setting. She also received a Best Practice Award in 2002, 2004 and 2005.

Rosanna's writing has been published in a number of Canadian anthologies. In August 2006, she was awarded an Ontario Arts Council "Writer's Works in Progress" Grant for her second novel. Out of 116 applicants, 14 writers were each awarded $12,000.

Rosanna plans to spend her summer relaxing, reading, researching and writing.
