Some officially-excellent educators join us in studio
Last night, two local teachers were among a handful to win Capital Educators Awards at a ceremony at Algonquin College. Mehmet Yilmaz teaches English and math at Terry Fox Elementary School, as well as running the robotics and video editing club. His school won the innovation award, for using technology to support learning. And Brenda Baird teaches psychology at the University of Ottawa. She was recognized for the story-telling approach she brings to her teaching. Both joined us in studio to explain their secrets to keeping students engaged.
