Aimee Roste is Clearview's Edwin Parr nomination

At the regular Clearview meeting on Thursday, March 2 the board of trustees decided to nominate Aimee Roste, a first-year teacher at Stettler Elementary School (SES) to represent Clearview for the the 2017 Alberta School Board Association (ASBA) Zone 4 Edwin Parr Teacher Award.

Teaching Grade 5 now, Roste came highly recommended by Principal Sharon Fischer.

In 2015-16 as a student teacher at SES, Roste had displayed a lot of potential, according to Fischer.

“She was very impressive then and she continues to excel and impress as a first-year teacher,” Fischer said. “Miss Roste is full of new and innovative ideas and brings an energy and passion to her classroom every day that is noticeable by both her colleagues and her students.”

The Edwin Parr Award recognizes outstanding work by first year teachers in Alberta. Established in 1964, it has always represented quality teaching and exemplary work.

The board of trustees enjoyed Roste’s enthusiasm, high level of character, commitment to her students and passion to continue to learn, which steered their decision.

Roste grew up in Stettler, attended SES, Middle School and graduated from Wm. E. Hay in 2012. She took her education degree at Red Deer College, and was successfully accepted into the Middle Years program. Roste was able to complete an extended practicum at SES last year with Carmen Fox, which led her to the Grade 5 position she has today.

Speaking of her nomination, Roste said, “I am very thankful to my administrators who have worked really hard through the nomination process of the Edwin Parr award, as well as the Clearview Public Schools board of trustees for putting forth my nomination.”

Roste further added that it meant a lot to her for not only having been recognized for her love for teaching, but for being identified for all the hard work she has put in.

“I am blessed to be a part of such an amazing community of school staff and school board representatives,” Roste said.

Clearview Superintendent Peter Barron said, “Aimee is an excellent candidate for the Edwin Parr award.

“She embodies all the qualities we look for in a first-year teacher innovative, hardworking and dedicated to her students.”

The ASBA Zone 4 nominees will be celebrated at a banquet on May 29, 2017 in Red Deer where the Zone 4 winner will be announced.
