    Local Teacher Recognized
    by Office Staff - Wednesday, 10 October 2018, 2:02 PM

    For immediate release: Oct. 10, 2018

    A new teacher in the furthest reaches of School District No.73 was recognized as Outstanding New Teacher by Premier John Horgan on World Teacher Day.

    Maymie Tegart whole heartedly took on the responsibility of teaching a multi-grade classroom and connecting to the tiny North Thompson community of Blue River in 2016.

    She quickly learned that her charges were an active group, used to dirt biking and snowmobiling, so she took the learning outside and brought nature into the school by turning a spare classroom into a greenhouse. The students started seeds for their garden, raised funds with their plants and learned about life-cycles and pollinators through observation and hands-on-learning.

    “The district is extremely proud of the work Ms. Tegart has been doing in Blue River,” said Alison Sidow, Superintendent SD73. “Her passion for teaching and community involvement is inspirational and it’s wonderful to see the community come forward to nominate her - it’s clear she is making an incredible difference.”
