Regional Recipient

Howard Isaacs

Howard Isaacs created a special learning environment that makes a big difference for 16 students at Woodland Heights Public School in London, Ontario. Before coming under Mr. Isaacs' wing, these students had not had much success in the education system. Before long, his colleagues noticed that these students were performing more like gifted students than students at risk. They responded very enthusiastically, in particular, to new units featuring computer technology created by Mr. Isaacs.
