An Elmwood High School teacher will be presented with one of the highest educational honours today.
Chantelle Cotton will be presented with the Prime Minister’s Award for Teaching Excellence by Elmwood-Transcona MP Lawrence Toet.
Cotton is one of six Manitoba educators who were selected for the honour. She was a key member of a team that earned the school the prestigious HP Innovations in Education technology grant. Cotton also motivated students to support humanitarian endeavours such as the Pakistan Relief Effort, the Adopt-A-Village program, and Free the Children’s Brick-by-Brick program, where Elmwood fundraised $10,000 to build a school in Sierra Leone.
The presentation will take place at the school at 10:15 a.m.
