Glen Motz, MP, rose in the House of Commons on Thursday June 1st, 2017 to recognize two local Medicine Hat teachers who received Canada’s Teaching Excellence Award.
Laura Gale of River Heights Elementary School, and Donna Armstrong of Crescent Heights High School. Laura, who teaches kindergarten, takes her class out for hands-on learning trips, uses technology to connect with classrooms globally, and encourages her students’ passions. Donna teaches multimedia, design and communications. Her students have gone on to win numerous design and animation awards. She has developed a mentoring between grades program, as well as provides professional development for teachers in less developed countries.
These two amazing teachers, along with all teachers, are helping build Canada’s future leaders by providing the skills for youth to excel in tomorrow’s economy. On behalf of all residents, students, and parents, congratulations to Laura and Donna. We thank them for their continued excellence and support of our children.
