Kinuso, Alberta – Landon Fink is High Prairie School Division's nominee for the 2020 Edwin Parr award. The Edwin Parr award is given to a first-year teacher who goes above and beyond in the duties normally expected of a teacher. 

 

It has been a pleasure to have Landon as part of my staff this year. In over 15 years of administrative experience, Landon is my first Edwin Parr nominee. I have worked with many excited and motivated first-year teachers, but Landon’s consistent pursuit of new knowledge, strategies and solutions to support the success of students is beyond what I have experienced previously. This, combined with a positive outlook, encouraging presence and coach-ability put Landon in a very strong position to become a master teacher early in his career.” stated Linda Green, Principal of Kinuso School.

 

Landon is happy to learn about the context of any situation. Landon is a team player who works hard to find out about his students. He leverages the knowledge and wisdom of other staff members to help him improve his relationships with his students. Landon spends a lot of his free time coaching students, which has helped him to build many positive relationships with students. His interactions in the classroom and genuine, respectful, humourous and kind. He goes out of his way to connect with and support students. He spends a lot of his free time with students, shooting hoops in the gym and just connecting on a personal level with his students. In collegial relationships, Landon is a natural leader who works well with others and is very professionally generous. He always volunteers and is very helpful to everyone on staff. He is very supportive of his colleagues and goes out of his way to put a positive perspective into many difficult situations. He works hard to support his colleagues in an assertive, but respectful way. Landon has spent a lot of his time coaching students in volleyball and basketball. Landon is the Athletic Director of the school, which takes up a lot of time to schedule and organize all of the sporting events that occur in and out of the school. He is very dedicated to the school and volunteers many hours to coach and support events that happen at the school. Landon planned and ran the 2019 Terry Fox Run. Landon is an eager volunteer who can always be counted on the pitch-in and help with whatever needs to be done. Landon participated in a Career Recruitment Fair at the University of Saskatchewan. He took time away from his classroom to represent his school division.” said Assistant Superintendent Treva Emter.
