Educators of the Year Award


Winner: Debbie Sarauer Carlton Trail College

Debbie Sarauer is an advisor and friend to many who is never too busy to help out, even if it is not a working day. As a teacher she has made a huge impact on many lives in the community. This is itself, as beneficial to many families; however, this person goes above and beyond the job and has helped many students in a multitude of ways. Not only does she encourage the education and socialization that her class enabled, she also became an integral part of so many people's lives. The effects of her work, both inside and outside of the classroom are evident in many aspects of newcomer students overall well-being. From organizing potluck suppers, to lake days and camping Debbie seeks to enhance the cultural horizons of newcomers and Canadians alike, and by doing this while she teaches she also inspires.
