Emanuel Sylvester

When Emanuel Sylvester of Jameswood School in Winnipeg, Manitoba, is not providing extra help for his own students, he is conducting an endless campaign to improve the education system as a whole. Being firmly convinced that no one teacher can do e verything his or her students need to succeed, he has distinguished himself as a team player who has worked with his fellow teachers to improve teaching for students at all levels. He is constantly on the lookout for new techniques for teaching science and has strongly encouraged all students to work together through activities such as the school's homework club.
