STUDENT SUCCESS TEACHERS

Student success teachers are guidance counsellors whose focus is every student’s success. They identify and support struggling students, provide more options for learning, and monitor student progress. They work with school staff, students, parents, and the community to ensure more students earn the credits necessary to graduate.

Also, various student workshops are available in TLC throughout the year to ensure academic success.  Student success teachers you will find in TLC throughout the day include: Mrs. Christine Deconinck-O'Neail, Ms. Katherine Deconinck (Sem 1), Ms. Tanya Ostrowercha (Sem 2) and Mr. Blair Columbus.  As well, the TLC staff support individual students based on the grade division shown below.
