Year: 1996 – Province: Manitoba
Parents of Grade 4 and 5 students at the Phoenix School in Headingley, Manitoba, were amazed at how quickly the children who had initial doubts about math were won over by Judith Lawrence. Not content with just exciting her students, Ms. Lawrence soon was sharing the province's new math curriculum with entire families at special math nights at the school. Her students have gone on to win a number of mathematics awards and other honours. Her science students, not to be outdone, are enthusiastic participants in science fairs - 100% participation of the Grade 5 class and 75% of the Grade 4 class.
