Dewberry teacher Tyson Lancaster receives 2014 Edwin Parr Award

Tyson Lancaster, a teacher at Dewberry School, was awarded the 2014 Edwin Parr Award, an award sponsored by the Alberta School Boards Association (ASBA).  The Edwin Parr Award recognizes first year teachers that have demonstrated exceptional and innovative teaching skills in the classroom.  Mr. Lancaster was one of six award recipients from across Alberta. 

Mr. Lancaster teaches a combined grade 5/6 class at Dewberry School in grade 5 social studies and science and grades 5 and 6 math and language arts.  Additionally he teachers a grade 7/8/9 split in drama, health, art and sublimation, plus a grade 1/2/3 split in health, drama and accelerated reader. A number of his students have special needs.

"I feel blessed and honoured to have received this award,” he said. “After such an amazing first year of teaching, learning, growing, networking and relationship building, the awards ceremony was the perfect way to wrap up such an exhilarating year in BTPS.  It was humbling to listen to the other nominees’ introductions and to know that there are so many great teachers in the profession that I am so passionate about. I look forward to my future within BTPS and the many more years of teaching to come."

"I would like to extend a thank you to everyone who has been so supportive throughout my first year,” he continued. “I would like to send out a special thank you to my Principal Curt Orbeck and Assistant Principal Shannon Bakos for the original nomination and gracious support. I would also like to thank the BTPS Board of Trustees and the Zone 2/3 selection committees for selecting me. Lastly I would like to thank all of my students, their parents and other community members for being so wonderful and supportive from start to finish." 

“The Board of Trustees was thrilled to learn of Tyson’s award and we congratulate him on this achievement,” said Board Chair Darcy Eddleston. “It is a tribute to his skill and his hard work. BTPS has great teachers and when one of them receives recognition, it is truly a testament to BTPS staff as a whole. We wish Tyson continued success in his teaching career.” 

“I know that Tyson is setting a fine example, not only for his colleagues - present and future - but also for his students and the Dewberry School community at large,” said Superintendent Bob Allen.  “His passion and dedication to the art of teaching make him a worthy role model and I am delighted to offer him my congratulations on behalf of the staff of Buffalo Trail.” 

The Edwin Parr Award winners will be recognized and honored at the ASBA Fall General Meeting.  Mr. Lancaster will also be honoured at Buffalo Trail’s annual staff Celebration Day in October.
