Audrey Dunn

A teacher committed to enabling students to discover their own individuality and thrive through dance

Through her passion for dance and teaching, Audrey Dunn has succeeded, in a period of only a few years, to not only impressively increase the scope of the dance program at Cavelier-De LaSalle high school, but also enable it to gain the esteem and recognition it deserves in the eyes of everyone.

Whether it’s through the “Dieux de la danse Cavelier”, “La danse du NOUS” and “La danse du respect” projects, the graduating class’s Flashmob or the creation of choreographies for open house events and performances when touring elementary schools, Audrey Dunn tirelessly strives to get as many students involved as possible while promoting fairness and an openness to others.

Sylvie Blanchet

A teacher committed to encouraging her students to reach their true potential in terms of artistic expression and ecological commitment

Sylvie Blanchet had been a dance teacher at Saint-Louis college for many years now and has seen hundreds and hundreds of students pass through her classroom. In a desire to help each and every one of them experience the joys of being fully committed and discover their true potential through dance, she has set up a thousand and one different projects. For the past few years, she has also been using her leadership skills and devoting time and energy to the green committee’s “Les Semelles vertes” activity. The activity she helped set up now has eight subcommittees and 180 student volunteers who carry out various projects, such as the creation of an environmental mural, the installation of spouts for refilling sustainable bottles on all the school water fountains, and activities that aim to reduce food waste. Sylvie’s message is simple: to bring about change, all you have to do is believe.

Mathieu Chénier

A teacher committed to passing on a culture of excellence to his student athletes

Mathieu Chénier, a physical education teacher at Saint-Laurent high school, sees sport as a source of motivation for academic success. He believes so strongly in this that he shows up at school every morning at 7 to unlock the doors to the gym so students can practice or play sports before class. As the basketball coach and the person in charge of school supervision, he also has the chance to pass on to students the values of commitment and personal excellence, both in sports and their studies. Since academic success is not always a given for some student athletes, by advocating a culture of excellence, Mathieu manages to turn things around. And when the low income of certain families proves to be an obstacle, he organizes fundraising activities to make sure every student is given a chance.

Isabelle Chiasson

A special education technician committed to using sport to keep young people in school

When Isabelle Chiasson started working at Dorval-Jean XXIII high school four years ago as a special education technician, she wanted to get involved with students in a meaningful way. As an avid basketball player, she noticed that the program and teams needed a little spark so she decided to turn her favourite sport into a motivational tool. Her goal was simple: to give student athletes who play basketball at school, most of whom are from underprivileged backgrounds, the opportunity to adopt a sports-studies mind set, and want to stay in school and get their diploma. With her passion for young people, energy and persistency, Isabelle successfully converts losses into gains, enabling her team to win the championships as well as increasing the number of school sports teams. But more importantly, thanks to her leadership, she has put her athletes back on the road to success and self-esteem.

Mohamed Aliba

A sports coordinator committed to fostering a love of learning and accountability among students

Mohamed Aliba believes that it is vital to take an interest in students if we want them to succeed and he is one of those people who knows the importance of having a 360-degree view of teaching. All Mohamed’s colleagues agree that this sports coordinator at Paul-Gérin-Lajoie-d’Outremont high school has significantly helped improve the overall atmosphere at school since he started working there four years ago. Among other things, the number of sports teams has risen from 7 to 18, enabling more than a third of students to practice sports. But it is also thanks to his dedication that a sports committee was set up, as well as the Persévérance-Engagement-Plein air and Nuit du cinema projects. Through his compassion and leadership, he helps young people adopt a healthy lifestyle, develop a love of learning, become more responsible and persevere in order to be better prepared for the future.

Carole Dupuis

A teacher committed to finding work placements for all her students to help get them off to a good start

Carole Dupuis has been a special education teacher for 25 years now and has always strived towards the same goal, that of making sure every student has the opportunity to get their working life off to a good start. To attain this goal at Horizon-Jeunesse high school where she teaches young people with severe language disorders, Carole develops ties with numerous partners so that her students can obtain work placements and also scours the region hunting for future jobs for them. She helps students prepare for their interviews, accompanies them when needed and liaises with their family, putting her heart and soul into everything she does to support the development of her students. When it’s deemed necessary, she attends the interviews to reassure a potential employer, promote the skills of the future employee and make sure that any taboos are broken.
