General Vanier Elementary School


General Vanier Elementary School in St. Léonard recently welcomed 12 colleagues from China. These teachers of English as a Second Language are at McGill for an eight-week professional development stage. At General Vanier they first met with the principal, Ivana Colatriano, who answered their many questions regarding our educational system in general and our methodology in particular. They then spent the day visiting classes and speaking with teachers, parents and students. Pictured above Ms. Colatriano and Laura Marra, vice-chair of the Governing Board, welcome the 12 ESL teachers from China.
