Lisa Porter is a teacher and librarian at Grenoble Public School in Toronto, Ont., working with different classes and collaborating with teachers on inquiry-based projects. She and a group of teachers run the EcoSchool club, which they call the Grenoble Green Team (GGT). Last year, their school received Gold Status certification with the Ontario EcoSchool program. Porter shared some of the highlights from what their eco-club is doing to make their school and community a better place.
This year, Canadian Geographic Education and Shell Canada want to recognize two teachers by presenting each of them with Canada’s Energy Educator of the Year Award. This award acknowledges hard working Classroom Energy Diet Challenge teachers who have participated enthusiastically in the Challenge and who have shown commitment to fostering energy literacy in their school and community.
