Powell River Teacher Receiving National Inclusive Education Award

Summary: 
Sarah Shostak, a grade 3/4 teacher with School District 47, will be receiving a National Inclusive Education Award from the Canadian Association for Community Living and Inclusion BC.

New Westminster, May 4, 2015 – Sarah Shostak, a grade 3/4 teacher with School District 47, will be receiving a National Inclusive Education Award from the Canadian Association for Community Living and Inclusion BC. Sarah is being honoured for going above and beyond to make her classroom inclusive of all students, including those with special needs.

When Sarah created a mini sensory centre in her classroom, it was with the intent of creating a place for all students to get the most out of their learning experience. The sensory centre satisfied the development needs of all children in the classroom but it also made it possible for children with special needs who have sensory issues to become engaged within the classroom, included alongside their peers.

Sarah works hard to promote inclusion within her classroom, her school and the community. She recognizes the unique abilities of every child in her classroom and responds to their learning needs with dedication, patience and flexibility. 

Sarah Shostak will receive the award at the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre on May 28, 2015 at 12:00 noon as part of the Inclusion BC conference. Media are welcome to attend.
