A Montreal teacher just received the Prime Minister's Award for Teaching Excellence for 2022.

Being the only Quebecer out of the list of teachers to receive the award, Gail Bernstein has moved students and Canadians everywhere for her work with special needs students.

Working as a special needs teacher at L.I.N.K.S High School in Ahuntsic, her students and colleagues couldn’t have been more proud of her for her outstanding accomplishment.

According to the school’s website, “Ms. Bernstein’s  entire teaching career of 35 plus years has been in the field of special education. She has  taught in a variety of settings including The Douglas Psychiatric Hospital (children, adolescents and adults), Social Integration Services (SIS) at Marymount Adult Education Centre (now Wagar) and  Galileo Adult Education Centre and presently at LINKS, a specialized high school.”

Ms. Bernstein’s genuine message of love and acceptance towards her students has pushed students to become the best version of themselves, a gift that simply can not be replicated.

When asked about what lessons she has learned over the years as an educator, Ms Bernstein expressed that following her instincts is what has allowed her to continue inspiring her students throughout her career.

“Inspiring people to believe in our students, but most importantly inspiring students to believe in themselves. By trusting my instincts, I always have faith that my students will rise to the occasion and will go along for the ride if they see my complete investment in their journey.”
