2015 Excellence in Teaching Awards
The 2015 Excellence in Teaching Awards provide Albertans with an opportunity to recognize and celebrate the many contributions teachers and principals make to student learning – bringing the vision of Inspiring Education to life.
The Excellence in Teaching Awards 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.
All schools will soon be receiving a nomination package for the Excellence in Teaching Awards. The link to print additional copies can also be found here:2015 Excellence in Teaching Nomination Package
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:www.education.alberta.ca/teachers/excellence.aspx
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 January 9, 2015. The completed form will be returned to the Nomination Coordinator to meet the deadline of February 6, 2015.
If you have any further questions, please contact Linda Deans (780-441-6055) or Tina Monaco at (780 441-6074).
