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 Tobi Hunt McCoy on receiving the 2021-2022 Director’s Citation Award!


Tobi Hunt McCoy is an exemplary teacher and department head at Lisgar Collegiate Institute. She works incredibly hard to foster a school-wide love of reading and writing, and supports staff in learning new teaching approaches and implementing new practices in their own classrooms. To share her learning with others, Tobi also organizes book clubs for staff on topics like anti-racism and destreaming, and has led many equity-themed activities at staff meetings. She is committed to making sure all students have the opportunity to see aspects of their identity reflected in their school and in literature. She possesses excellent technology skills, which she uses to engage students, support staff, and keep the school community informed and organized. As a drama teacher, her professional connections with the National Arts Centre (NAC) have allowed for multiple learning opportunities for students, and she has supported many of the school’s musical and dramatic productions. Tobi is always willing to collaborate, working with teachers even outside of Lisgar on projects like the E3 Collaborative (Engaging and Empowering with English). Tobi always asks the right questions and is not afraid to speak up for the underserved, and is committed to moving the entire school forward in its equity journey. In everything that goes on at the school, Tobi’s leadership is a shining example to all!
