Division names its Edwin Parr Award nominee for 2021/2022

Lethbridge School Division has its nominee for the annual Edwin Parr Award.
Each year, school divisions submit the name of one first-year teacher as the nominee for the Edwin Parr Award, which is sponsored by the Alberta School Boards Association (ASBA).
One teacher from the zone is then selected as the zone nominee for the Fall General Meeting of the ASBA. 
The Lethbridge School Division nominee for the 2022 Edwin Parr Award is Ashley Zrim, a Grade 1 teacher at Senator Buchanan Elementary School. 
Buchanan principal, Lenee Veres-Fyfe, describes Ashley as a hardworking, dedicated, positive member of their staff who places students first in all that she does.
"She is the epitome of a role model for Senator Buchanan’s students, and community," said Veres-Fyfe. "Right from the start of her contract, it was very clear that Ashley would be a special addition to Senator Buchanan Elementary School and the teaching profession. Whether it be differentiated, engaging lesson planning, relationship building, volunteering throughout the school or collaborating with her colleagues, Ashley has excelled in every area."
Zrim added she was humbled and honoured to be nominated for the Edwin Parr award.
"It is a remarkable feeling and a privilege to have my name chosen," she said. "Thank you to those who have nominated me and continue to support me as I begin my career path in the teaching profession.”
