2016 Excellence in Teaching Awards
The Excellence in Teaching Awards program was initiated in 1989 by the Minister of Education to:
- recognize outstanding Alberta teachers,
- honour creative, innovative, and effective teaching,
- focus public attention on the teaching profession, and
- involve Albertans in celebrating teaching excellence.
Nominations are now open and close on Friday March 4, 2016.
Here is the link to print copies for the 2016 Excellence in Teaching Awards: https://archive.education.alberta.ca/media/15339098/2016-eta-english-nomination.pdf . One complete package should be made available for the School Council Chairperson.
To be eligible for nomination, teachers must hold an Alberta permanent professional teaching certificate at the time of nomination, work directly with students, teach courses of study and education programs authorized by the School Act and must be actively teaching in the current school year. Additional information about the Excellence in Teaching Awards can be found here: https://archive.education.alberta.ca/teachers/excellence/info/
For each nomination, a Nomination Coordinator needs to be identified. The Nomination Coordinator is the one who ensures all forms are collected and forwarded to the Selection Committee and who can also write a letter of support for the nominee. A principal may take on this role. All details can be found on page 1 of the Nomination Package.
All Nomination Coordinators should forward the Superintendent’s form to Tina Monaco at Catholic Education Services (care of Linda Deans) by February 5, 2016 to meet the March 4, 2016 deadline.
If you have any further questions, please contact Linda Deans (780-441-6055).
