SCDSB applauds Marlene Lee, Wal-Mart's 2004 "Teacher of the Year". Mrs. Lee received the award in recognition of her outstanding devotion to the students and her tireless dedication to school activities such as “Have Ark Will Travel,” a play that she wrote and produced specifically for the students at St. Paul Catholic school.|
Several students read letters they had submitted to Wal-Mart outlining the reasons why “Mrs. Lee should be selected as teacher of the year,” during a special presentation in the school’s gymnasium. This is the second year in a row that a teacher from the school has won this prestigious award. Last year, Janet Carscallen was honoured for her outstanding work. In addition to the “Teacher of the Year Award,” St. Paul Catholic school also received a cheque for $1,000 and $500 for being selected as the winning school for “Earth Day” and “Adopt A School Program” from Wal-Mart Canada.
