Armand Doucet, ASD-E
Armand Doucet inspired and mentored staff and students at Riverview Middle School to believe that they can achieve anything. Armand is an active member of the Core Leadership Team, an Apple Distinguished Educator, and a PSSC representative. He is also co-leader of the ICT team in charge of developing and implementing the technology plan for the school including professional development, websites for teachers, and technology integration in the classroom. His student–centred approach to physical education, physical literacy, and health led to the development of a health report card with personal fitness objectives set by individual students and resulted in 85% improving or maintaining their personal fitness scores. He also delivered a testing program for multiple intelligences, predominant personality traits and characteristics, and created a corresponding student data base that provided information to all staff individualizing student learning.
Armand works tirelessly offering tutoring and enrichment opportunities. He leads extracurricular athletic training, yoga, and dance, as well as the cross-curricular group of our literacy and numeracy project. He develops creative ways to reach all students by initiating student-centred, cross-curricular activities that emphasize problem solving while building self-confidence and encouraging accountability. From academic, athletic, social-emotional development, entrepreneurship, global citizenship, digital literacy, or participation in extracurricular activities, his students are brilliant examples of what can be achieved in the positive learning environment he creates.
