Posted on 06/10/2022

The Director’s Citation Award and Employee Recognition Awards are an annual opportunity to appreciate and celebrate the work of OCDSB staff, and the positive impact they have had on students, colleagues, and families across the District.

We are pleased to share that a staff member from our school community has been recognized this year.
Congratulations to Jacqueline Chaine on receiving the 2021-2022 Director’s Citation Award!


Jacqueline Chaine is an efficient and capable Assistant Office Administrator, an active community advocate, and a fierce supporter of students and their families. She has been creating safe and nurturing spaces for students since she joined the OCDSB in 2004. She goes above and beyond the scope of her job to make sure that everyone feels welcome, accepted and supported, helping youth to acknowledge their strengths and weaknesses and actively encouraging them to embrace their authentic selves. Jacqueline never shies away from a new project; she is the first to jump in when a new initiative is proposed, no matter how busy she is. At school, she will team up with students to help them feel more comfortable and encourage student participation: some will even join certain activities just to spend time with her! In the spring of 2020, Jacqueline organized a tile painting project for staff to depict positive emotions, so that the tiles could be displayed and encourage students when they returned from remote learning. Her "joie de vivre" is contagious, and her positive impact on school climate is evident to anyone her energy touches. Jacqueline has a heart as big as the moon, and her colleagues believe that her caring and spontaneous personality is her super power!
