Barbara Szatanski , Cecilia Wall

Barbara Szatanski and Cecilia Wall are experts at responding to students with a wide variety of needs. Their school - Blossom Park Public School in Gloucester, Ontario - has students from 44 different cultural and linguistic backgrounds. The two teachers have turned this daunting situation to their advantage with a teaching approach that puts students of different grades, abilities and sexes together into six-member learning teams. This environment is very stimulating for students, a number of whom arrive before school begins and skip their breaks to keep working.
