Trish Griffin, IDA member, wins award!


TGriffin with award May 2018

Congratulations from ONBIDA to Trish Griffin, an IDA member, who received the 2018 Contribution to Catholic Education Award this week in Kingston, Ontario!

Ms. Griffin received this award for her passionate volunteer work at J.J O'Neill Catholic School.   Trish's personal experience in helping her own child 'break' the code, and learn to love language, led to training in Orton-Gillingham /Structured Literacy.  At the school she applies this knowledge in her volunteer work, and "her impact is felt throughout the school with interested staff learning the basics of the O-G approach and Structured Literacy in the classroom".   Trish's work is a great example of one person making a difference in so many lives.  Again, congratulations from ONBIDA!
