Ottawa, ON – Larry Miller, MP for Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound, is congratulating five local teachers on having received national awards for teaching excellence; the Prime Minister’s Awards for Teaching Excellence and the Governor General’s History Awards for Excellence in Teaching.

 

The Prime Minister’s Awards for Teaching Excellence recognize outstanding elementary and secondary school teachers in all disciplines who, through the innovative use of information and communications technologies, help Canadian students to meet the challenges of a 21st century society and economy. There were a total of 35 Teaching Excellence Awards being awarded this year. Recipients from the area were:

 

–       Charlie Glasspool of Macphail Memorial Elementary School;

–       Beth Fischer of John Diefenbaker Secondary School;

–       Bill Legate of Beavercrest Community School

 

Furthermore, it was recently announced that Ryan McManaman and David Alexander of the Owen Sound Collegiate and Vocational Institute had received the Governor General’s History Awards for Excellence in Teaching. This award is presented to individual teachers or teams of teachers for excellence in teaching Canadian history. This year, there were a total of 8 recipients.

 

“I would like to sincerely congratulate Charlie Glasspool, Beth Fischer, and Bill Legate on receiving the Prime Minister’s Awards for Teaching Excellence. Only 35 teachers across the entire country received this award and you should all be extremely proud of this achievement,” said Miller. “I would also like to congratulate Ryan McManaman and David Alexander on their tremendous achievement of being named two of only 8 recipients of the Governor General’s History Awards for Teaching Excellence. This is certainly well-deserved and I commend you both for your dedication to teaching Canadian history.”
