HAVE YOUR SAY: Congratulations for educational ‘excellence and professionalism’

Congratulations to Melanie Zimmer who has just received her Masters of Education.

Congratulations to Melanie Zimmer who has just received her Masters of Education for her work on using Assessment for Learning Strategies to help improve student engagement and quality of written output. Ms. Zimmer continues to exemplify the highest standard of excellence and professionalism which exists within the teaching profession. Again, a big bouquet to Melanie in recognition of her devotion to collaborative, cooperative and innovative teaching excellence and for her ongoing commitment to personal and professional development in devising new strategies and techniques to help all of her students better meet the demands of 21st century learning.

As much as I appreciate the effort that goes into organizing any musical event in our wonderful town, I think it not well done when the event as advertised in local media and posted on the organizer’s website and Facebook event as “doors open at 7 p.m.” when indeed they are not. Showing up to a show early to wait in line only to find that almost all of the seats are already taken and door tickets are sold out more than 15 minutes before the doors are scheduled to be opened is frustrating and felt very unfair.

One of the women build teams with Habitat for Humanity would like to offer a huge thank you to the many organizations who donated prizes for our fundraiser at the Mex Pub recently. Roy Tai from the Mex donated use of his venue and the profits from the burger and beer ticket sales. Big Fun donated their time and kept the dancers rocking. Other who helped included Progressive Growth Garden Supply, The Avenue, Jamie Edwards, London Drugs, Extreme Runners, Majestic Mattress, Coastal Community Credit Union, Cowichan Valley RV, Jim Smiley-ReMax, The Joint, Shaw Communications, Red Barn Quilting Store, Comox Valley Kayaks and Rhodos Coffee Roasting Company. Our event was a tremendous success and the proceeds will help towards construction of the Women Build duplex. And thank you to all our family, friends and colleagues who came out to support our fundraiser.
