Erika Weber, (seen here with St. Ben's student, Eleanore Lowen) A science teacher at St. Benedict Catholic Secondary School in Sudbury has been selected for the Teacher Leader Training Program offered by Let’s Talk Science for the 2023-2024 school year.

A science teacher at St. Benedict Catholic Secondary School in Sudbury, Erika Weber, has been selected for the Teacher Leader Training Program offered by Let’s Talk Science for the 2023-2024 school year. 

Candidates participated in three levels of interviews for this unique position. 

As a teacher leader, Weber hopes to build confidence in her fellow educators who are not familiar with science education and assist them in feeling comfortable with completing hands-on experiments and modelling STEM in their own classrooms.

“Through this experience, I will be a permanent member of a community of passionate STEM educators from across Canada. I am hoping to gain new strategies, best practices, and resources that I can share with my colleagues at the Sudbury Catholic District School Board,” stated Weber in the release. “When passion is put to practice, it inspires others; I look forward to learning from this program so that our students can put their best foot forward in a fast-paced and competitive industry.”

“Mrs. Weber’s passion for STEM education is contagious. She is continually looking for engaging and meaningful opportunities for her students, which in turn sparks a love for science. Her leadership in the areas of science, robotics, and coding has enriched St. Benedict, and I am excited to see what her next adventure brings!” said St. Ben’s principal Beverly Belanger.
