November 18, 2015 - On Tuesday, November 17, Sudbury Catholic Itinerant Resource Teacher. Tanya Marcotte was recognized as the Learning Disabilities Association of Sudbury 2015 teacher of the year at the SCDSB board meeting. L.D.A.S. Chair, Liz Brett-Dickie was on hand to present Marcotte with the award. Brett-Dickie explained that Marcotte was selected as she “consistently supports the needs of students with learning disabilities, and tirelessly works to ensure their success.” Marcotte’s co-workers nominated her for this award and felt that she was an excellent candidate. Brett-Dickie read aloud an excerpt from the nomination letter for Marcotte.

“Tanya has been working as a special education resource teacher for over 12 years. She embraces our Catholic faith and it’s seen throughout her work with special education students. Tanya lives by the belief of getting to know students (learning needs/preferences) and then responds through the opportunities provided in the classroom.

Tanya works tirelessly behind the scenes not only supporting students with Learning Disabilities but also supporting teaching staff. She provides them with proven strategies that assist students to become the best they can be.

Tanya also plays a key role in assisting the school board to organize its yearly summer camps. She is able to recommend specific students who would benefit from this intervention.”

Marcotte, accompanied by her husband and parents, was visibly moved by the award, and explained she was very honoured and humbled. “I can’t do what I do with out the teachers I work with - who challenge and inspire, my parents who instilled in me my strong work ethic, and my husband who puts up with my worries daily.”
