This year’s Excellence in Teaching Awards recognize 20 educators from across Alberta for making a positive difference in the lives of students.
The teachers and principals were nominated by students, parents, colleagues and communities for demonstrating exceptional leadership, innovation, creativity, and effective teaching practices.
“The dedication of our teachers and principals has allowed Alberta’s students to be among the best in the world. Our 2014 Excellence in Teaching Award recipients use their talent and expertise to bring Inspiring Education to life, and we thank them for giving students their best each and every day.”
Each award recipient will be presented with a certificate and pin, and have access to $4,000 for professional development. They join the more than 500 award-winning educators who have been recognized through the Excellence in Teaching Awards program over the past 26 years.
Alberta Education will present the Excellence in Teaching Awards on May 24 in Calgary with the support of the Alberta School Boards’ Association, the Alberta School Councils’ Association, the Alberta Teachers’ Association, the Association of Alberta Deans of Education, the College of Alberta School Superintendents, and the Edmonton Journal.
