RED DEER- To honour excellence in first-year teachers, the Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools Board of Trustees has selected Ceanna Prediger from St. Joseph High School as Division finalist for the Alberta School Boards Association Edwin Parr Award.
“When we heard that Ms. Prediger would be our division nominee for the Edwin Parr Award, we were very excited for her. Teaching is a complex act and one that requires teachers to bewell prepared, thoughtful in curriculum delivery, have a deep understanding of their subject matter and most importantly, have a love for the students they teach. Ceanna exemplifies these qualities of a great teacher and one gift of hers that shines brightly on a daily basis is her kindness. St. Joseph High School is truly blessed to have Ceanna as a teacher and colleague,” said Principal, Graeme Daniel.
Out of these many accolades, it was Ceanna’s support of our English Second Language students that spoke to us, which demonstrated her talents and passion for her profession,” said Vice-Chair Trustee, Murray Hollman at Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools.
Each year the Alberta School Boards Association honours six outstanding first-year teachers with the Edwin Parr Teacher Award.
School boards may nominate any first-year K to 12 teacher who has taught in an Alberta school jurisdiction which is a member of the ASBA.
