A fellow teacher and nominator Sharon Howatt says” M. Couture is one of the rare gems in education and in particular the French education community who gives his all, shows his passion for language and his love for learning. “Brenda Larsen, a curriculum specialist with the Department says “M. Couture started his teaching career in New Brunswick in 1984 coming to PEI in 1986. After 31 years of teaching he is still known as a flexible team player that wants the best for his students.” From a parent: I have witnessed the joy and creativity that Terry brings to his classroom each and every day.”
