Ontario English Catholic Teachers

Lessons For Life

We teach math and spelling, science and geography. But as Catholic teachers, we bring to these subjects a values-based lens.

This means a math lesson includes a discussion of income disparity, and a science lesson weaves in social justice. We want our students to graduate as thoughtful individuals, and our research shows that they do. Catholic school graduates vote in elections, donate to charities and volunteer in their communities at very high rates. They do this because we give our students Lessons for Life.

On this page you will find stories of impact and contribution – of commitment and resiliency. We encourage you to take a moment to look around and meet some of the wonderful people who are part of our Catholic school community. If you are touched by any of these stories, please share them. Download our Lessons for Life booklet and share our message with others.
