Concordia University College considers itself a teaching university, where faculty focus on students. So it’s little wonder that Concordia’s Faculty of Education has produced two award-winning teachers in 2012 alone. Each year, the Edwin Parr Award is presented by the Alberta School Boards Association to six first-year teachers in the province. The recipients are chosen for their demonstration of outstanding initial teaching proficiency, for going beyond the duties normally expected of teachers, and especially for ensuring that students feel cared for and respected in the school setting. Concordia graduates Lisa Mol and Leah Kres were recognized with Edwin Parr Awards for 2012. Mol, interactions teacher at Parkview School and 2011 Concordia alumnus, received the Edwin Parr Award as the representative for Edmonton Public Schools. Mol was selected because of her outstanding demonstration of the Teaching Quality Standard.
