“I am amazed at how well, comfortably and calmly everyone spoke today, and how well each speaker looked at the audience,” said deaf and hard of hearing resource teacher, Ashley Middleton, who joined retired teachers and fellow judges Ron Gillard and Chris Jarvis in judging the Morrisburg Public School grades 4-6 speeches on Thursday, April 12.
