A first-year Wolf Creek Public Schools teacher has been honoured with a teaching award.
Ty Wagar, a teacher in Wolf Creek Public Schools, was celebrated as the winning nominee and recipient of Zone 4’s Edwin Parr Award for the 2020-2021 school year.
Alberta School Boards Association (ASBA) Zone 4 is comprised of eight central Alberta School Boards. Each year, each school board in Zone 4 nominates an exceptional first year teacher for the Edwin Parr Award.
“I could not be more honoured to receive this award on behalf of Zone 4,” says Ty Wagar who teaches at Bluffton School. “The nominees from all over our zone are superb teachers, and I feel extremely proud to be recognized within such a dedicated, caring group.”
Alda Lovell, people services director for Wolf Creek school division, said, “Ty is an outstanding, yet humble first-year educator, who captures the essence of Edwin Parr and his belief that a teacher should strive to go above and beyond bringing positive influence to the community.”
“Trustees in central Alberta are so impressed with our exceptional first year teachers,” says Laurette Woodward, ASBA Zone 4 chair and Red Deer Public Schools vice-chair. “In a difficult year with unusual challenges, these teachers showed incredible dedication. Their skill, and especially the relationships they’ve built are impressive.”
