Aspiring Teachers Gain Hands on Experience at Sudbury Catholic District School Board’s Summer Learning Programs


July 28, 2015 - Providing rich summer programs helps to reduce summer learning loss and in some cases, increases student achievement but research also shows that teachers & support staff gain experience in teaching literacy/numeracy and First Nation Metis expectations and outcomes.
This year, Sudbury Catholic District School Board was fortunate enough to hire 3 tutors who are aspiring to work as teachers. Tutors are partnered with experienced teachers who act as their mentors.
Nathalie Lavalle, a recent graduate from Laurentian University’s French Teacher’s College Program has been working as a classroom tutor for the last 3 years. Nathalie states, “this experience is invaluable to me as a new teacher because it taught me to connect with my students in a fun learning environment”.
For Sebastien Papineau, a first time tutor and second year psychology student at Laurentian University, this hands-on classroom experience has confirmed his desire to become a teacher.
Alina Micelotta has recently come back to Sudbury after teaching for two years in Cambridge, England. Having her own class and participating in the Summer Learning Program proved to her how much she enjoys teaching and can’t wait to teach in her hometown.
