Celebrating all of BC’s Teachers

Thank you to everyone who sent in amazing stories of BC teachers who show kindness and compassion, inspiration and innovation in their classrooms every day. It is impossible to acknowledge all the excellent educators across our great province. Global BC and the BC Teachers’ Federation invite you to read the stories below of just a few of the many wonderful teachers across our province. Join us in celebrating all BC’s teachers.

Our kids and their teachers. Worth investing in.

Calculus and humour… what a combination. For most of us, the sciences can be tricky, but not for Dr. Lorrie Welch’s students. Dr. Welch is a funny and caring teacher, who encourages her students to reach their maximum potential in calculus and chemistry. Along with her encouragement, passion for the course work, and an innovative teaching style, Dr. Welch is always available to her students for extra support. She makes learning fun – but she runs a tight ship. Teaching STEM subjects is challenging and being able to inspire young people to follow her chosen field of study is a testament to her love of the subject and of teaching.
