Gail Bernstein, teacher at L.I.N.K.S. High School of the English Montreal School Board, was the recipient of the Prime Minister’s National Award for Teaching Excellence in 2022. She was the only Quebecer to win in this category this year among the 10 winners chosen from across Canada. “Her commitment to excellence and advocacy for students with special needs is the pillar to all our learners and staff at L.I.N.K.S.,” said the school’s principal Maria Caldarella.
