Rosalind McCanny Receives OCT Scholarship

Congratulations to Outdoor and Experiential Education (OEE) teacher candidate Rosalind McCanny on winning the Ontario College of Teachers (OCT) Primary/Junior scholarship.

The OCT Scholarship program supports and sustains excellence in the teaching profession by reinforcing high standards and professional competence. It rewards tomorrow's educators who model the values of teaching as a respectful and forward-looking profession. 

Rosalind has worked passionately with children and teens in a variety of contexts, including as a caregiver, private tutor, camp counsellor and workshop facilitator. Colleagues describe her as charming and genuinely enthusiastic with crackling intelligence and exceptionally strong creative and analytical abilities. 

I aspire to stay true to my morals, to always act with respect and care for my colleagues and students, and to try to leave all situations a little better than I found them.
