- Make allowances for students' individual challenges but encourage all to achieve. Also insist that students be responsible for their own behaviour. Initiate discussion about appropriate consequences for actions that need to be corrected.
- Work with instructional support staff to develop individual education plans when needed.
- Makes effective use of technology to challenge students and present new ideas to them. After reading the novel Shiloh, for example, her students created a video enactment of the court case presented in the book. Ms. Stacey has also recorded audio-visual presentations by elders to share with her students.
- Has led many pilot programs to introduce new technology at the school. For example, she pioneered the use of an electronic mark book that allows parents with a password to access their child's records so the school and parents can work more effectively together.
"Ms. Stacey regularly has the students work in cooperative groups in order to learn to work as a team. This is an invaluable skill, one that is targeted as perhaps the most important skill for young people once they join the workforce." Associate director of education
"I live in a First Nation Reserve in Canada; our geographical location makes it easy for parents to send their children off reserve to be educated. Ms. Stacey showed me that our school system could provide high quality education within the territory." Parent
