October 14, 2011 - Community partners gathered together at the Caruso Club on Friday, October 14, 2001 to share breakfast while learning more about the faces of learning disabilities in the community. The breakfast was organized by the Learning Disabilities Association of Sudbury (L.D.A.S.) which is comprised of a team of parents, educators and professionals all working together for individuals with learning disabilities. The morning’s agenda included the honouring of teachers in the community that support students in reaching their full potential. St. Benedict teacher Kelly Orasi-Leach was one of these teachers. Receiving one of two Educators of the Year awards, presented by Liz Brett-Dickie, Orasi-Leach was overwhelmed as she was presented with her award. “I feel undeserving,” Kelly said. “I am so fortunate that I get to do a job every day that doesn’t even feel like a job.” Presenter Brett-Dickie said that “she knows first hand what a wonderful teacher Kelly is, and what a great job she does for her students.” The St. Benedict teacher runs the Student Success programming for the school and also runs several workshops that help people understand the learning disability profiles. As well, she works with several community partners and builds relationships in order to ensure there is tremendous support for the needs of her students. “We are so proud of Kelly and her commitment to our students,” stated Rossella Bagnato, Superintendent of School Effectiveness for the Sudbury Catholic Board. “Her dedication to our students is outstanding, and we are blessed to have her as part of the Sudbury Catholic staff.”
