Introduction — Your Resource
Welcome to your Exemplary Practices resource for Teaching Excellence brought to you by the Prime Minister's Awards program (PMA). Within these pages, you will be introduced to extraordinary teachers who represent some of the best in the field from across the country.
The 2008 Exemplary Practices are divided as follows:
The Exemplary Practices booklet is both a tribute to the 2008 PMA recipients and part of their legacy designed to further what they have experienced by sharing their knowledge and experience with others.
We all remember a teacher who had a profound influence on us. The 2008 PMA recipients are such teachers. They are innovators in the classroom who deliver and explore new and dynamic methods for teaching curriculum. They excite and inspire their students, helping them with career and life choices. They stand as role models for their students and as mentors and guides for colleagues and student teachers. Their doors are always open.
Each of the PMA Excellence winners completed a comprehensive questionnaire providing answers to questions that explored their personal and professional qualities, attitudes and experiences. During their visit to Ottawa they shared experiences and passed on their insights and hard-earned knowledge during the two-day workshop.
