Congratulations to Jessica Murch on receiving the 2021-2022 Director’s Citation Award!


Jessica Murch is an outstanding Educational Assistant whose work in the behaviour intervention program has provided immense support to students, staff and families. Jessica always demonstrates her open mindset with ample positivity, arriving at school each day ready to assist any student or staff member in need. Her collaborative problem solving skills allow her to build long-lasting connections with all students: not only does she support students in specialized program classes, she also creates and implements social skills clubs for all students of all ages. Throughout the pandemic, Jessica has demonstrated exemplary creative thinking to ensure staff can still meet students’ needs. She established socially-distanced sporting activities during recess for intermediate students, and ensured body breaks were provided for all. She has also helped ensure staff receive the technology they need during remote learning, and checks in regularly with students and staff members. She is an excellent role model to all, always able to transform small tasks into leadership opportunities for students. Jessica consistently demonstrates that making meaningful connections with students is key to their social-emotional well-being, which is then transformative to their learning!
