Teaching Excellence Awards


On Friday, April 26th, three faculty members were recognized for their excellence in teaching. Ginette Roberge, associate professor in the Francophone School of Education, won the full-time teaching excellence award. In her nomination package, Dr. Roberge was recognized by her colleagues and students as being consistently committed and available to her students, plus is a role model for future educators.

As one student wrote: “She is a perfect teaching example for future educators. She demonstrates in-depth theoretical and applied knowledge of French pedagogy at the primary and intermediate levels. She takes the time needed to ensure every student understands the subject matter taught in every course by using various tools and methods (i.e., exit slips) for the practical application of learned concepts.”

Two part-time teaching excellence awards were also given – one to Kayla Levesque in Accounting and one to Miriam Cusson in Théâtre. Ms. Levesque is described as a “passionate and versatile instructor” and “an inspiration to fellow faculty members and students.”

As for Ms. Cusson, she is said to be “a woman who is absolutely passionate about theatre, and shares her enthusiasm in the classroom. She fulfills her role as mentor, and makes sure every one of her students reaches his or her full potential.”
