This award was established by the Calgary Retired Teachers’ Association in recognition of their commitment to excellence in the teaching profession. The award will be given annually to a second year Bachelor of Education (Elementary) degree program student upon successful completion of the fall term practicum. The successful applicant will be selected on the basis of demonstrated excellence in performance during the fall practicum. The applicant must submit a personal letter describing their practicum experiences and outlining their future goals in the teaching profession. A letter of support from their fall term practicum advisor or cooperating teacher will also be required. Preference will be given to students who demonstrate financial need. The recipient may be asked to attend a regular meeting of the Calgary Retired Teachers’ Association.
