"We believe that good teaching provides young people with the intellectual resources to count on as they set out to face life's challenges," stated Vic Medland, CEO, Ontario Teachers' Insurance Plan (OTIP) when presenting one of the awards.
"These award winners are representative of all Ontario's teachers" added Terry Hamilton, President of the Ontario Teachers' Federation. "It is a wonderful way for us to celebrate our profession and recognize the excellence of teachers."
