The exemplary work of an École Mother Teresa School teacher has been recognized provincially, and as a result, he’s received funding that will benefit his students.

Jeremy Ziebart, who teaches math and science at the school, was chosen as one of 20 teachers in the province to receive an Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta (APEGA) 2014 Teacher Award.

He was presented with it Tuesday afternoon, when he was also given $2,000 to be put toward math- and science-related studies at the school.

Mother Teresa principal Dorice Swensrude felt Ziebart was fully deserving of his award, thanks to his “innovative teaching strategies in math and science, leadership, commitment to excellence, and passion for creating high learning opportunities for all”.

She credits him for building strong relationships with his students, and for preparing them for life outside the classroom.

“The many high school and post-secondary students who are constantly returning to visit Mr. Ziebart bear testament to the solid relationships that are built, and just how much he helps these students achieve future success,” she said.

The award is presented to “outstanding math and science teachers in elementary, junior and senior-high schools for demonstrated excellence in shaping the intellectual and creative development of students and for teachers’ outstanding efforts to make school cool”, according to APEGA.

Earlier this year, Ziebart was also a semi-finalist in the province’s Excellence in Teaching Awards.
