Teaching Excellence Award

Manitoba's Celebration of Excellence in Teaching was recently held. Congratulations to Jackie Burrough, Shelley Lowes and Angie Bowley of Birtle Collegiate for winning the Team Collaboration Award.

Seeing low student performance in math and consistently low scores on provincial exams, these three teachers made improving student learning and performance in mathematics a priority. They decided to redefine the math experience from grades 7 to 12. They identified concepts that were lacking and, using exceptional planning and programming, developed a team approach to meeting challenges. Their collaboration ensured that teachers increased student learning and success not only in individual classrooms but across all levels. They worked tirelessly to support struggling learners, engaging students with hands-on experiences and using technology creatively. The impact of their collaboration has been profound. Their efforts over the last five years resulted in increased student engagement, confidence and work ethics in mathematics, increased enrollment in calculus, pre-calculus and applied math courses, and higher marks in each grade level.
