Matthew Malbon Nominated for Edwin Parr Award

Holy Cross Elementary Teacher Lakeland Catholic’s 2015 Nominee for Edwin Parr
COLD LAKE, AB (March 3rd, 2015) - Lakeland Catholic School District is pleased to announce Matthew Malbon as their nominee for the 2015 Edwin Parr Teacher Award.

The Edwin Parr Award recognizes outstanding first year teachers in Alberta. Matthew is a grade 4 teacher at Holy Cross Elementary School who truly deserves special recognition. He skillfully employs effective strategies to fully understand the learning needs and individual learning styles of each student.
Matthew has dedicated a significant amount of time investigating, seeking support and attending professional development opportunities to support the various learning styles in his classroom. He has incorporated Multiple Intelligences on a daily basis to enhance student learning and each day, uses brain breaks to get his students active, engaged and ready to learn. Matthew continues building rapport with students and families utilizing students’ interests to make learning authentic and engaging for every student. Knowing his students thoroughly and having strong home connections drives Matthew’s pedagogy.

Matthew’s passion to provide students with a full educational experience is clearly demonstrated in his involvement in extra-curricular activities. Matthew requested to start a Technology Club and asked to use “Educational Mind Craft” to engage students and enhance their technological abilities. This club was extremely well received by students and Matthew currently runs this club at lunch. Through this club, he has been able to introduce a variety of themes, including experiential learning, outdoor education and circuitry.

Matthew is also coaching the grade 5/6 boys’ basketball team and organizes morning practices as well as truly enjoying the experience of taking them to several games.

Lakeland Catholic is proud of their 2015 Edwin Parr nominee and would like to thank Matthew for all of his hard work and dedication to the District.
