Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Linda Candib, a fourth-grade teacher from Valencia, was named Tuesday as a Bravo Award winner for her ability to inspire students by weaving the arts into general education lessons. A teacher at Charles Helmers Elementary, Candib was recognized during a gala at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel marking the 25th anniversary of the arts education awards. “(Art) is so much a part of life that it shouldn’t be left out,” Candib said before the ceremony. Candib has taught at Helmers for nine years, and in her class, every subject has the potential for an art component, including math. “You can do an art activity, like when I do geometry,” said Candib, who has a minor in art history and a master’s in dramatic art. “They can do a picture by making geometric shapes.” She’ll take the works of artists such as Russia’s Wassily Kandinsky and Holland’s Piet Mondrian, painters whose work fits well in a geometry lesson. Candib said using art as a learning tool allows the children to comprehend and retain information in a way that has meaning to them personally. At Tuesday’s ceremony, hosted by producer-director Garry Marshall, Candib won in the general education category. Brent Beerman of Crescenta Valley High School in La Crescenta, Julianne De Sal of Viewpoint School in Calabasas and Marjorie Gaines of Newcastle Elementary School in Reseda were finalists in the arts specialists category. last_img read more

We employed CSEI and found the partnership with them of huge benefit.“They measured where we were and then set about working to get us to a level where we feel the customer wants to be. The training used was very involving of our staff and in fact our staff suggested many of the improvements. It has been very worthwhile and we will continue our work with CSEI to ensure service excellence continues.”Customer Service Excellence Ireland was launched only this year and brings a fresh approach to the all important area of customer service.The training used in the workshops has the aim of establishing a focus on the customer experience and how that can be improved. By having a measurement before training and a recognition programme as a follow up, all three elements combine to produce a stronger customer service satisfaction outcome giving the business that uses the programme, a competitive edge.

It leaves them traumatised.“This is what happens. It’s just dreadful.”Another friend said: “You couldn’t meet a more innocent man. Everyone is praying for George and we hope he gets out of Letterkenny hospital soon.“The whole community is right behind him and his family.” People right across the communities of Donegal are being invited to join a community Text Alert scheme in a bid to crack down on the criminals.A meeting will take place at the resource centre in Manor next Monday at 9pm.
