Lynwood Madder of Earl Grey School in Winnipeg has high standards, and his students rise to meet them. Responsible for a pilot all-girl science, math and technology program, he had a direct role in its success. His classroom management eliminates discipline problems, and his enthusiasm for the curriculum captivates the students. This yields impressive results: attendance in his classes exceeds 96 per cent, and students' grades are higher than average, both for the school and on the Canadian Test of Basic Skills. Mr. Madder gives pre- and post-lesson tests to highlight the students' learning, brings science to life with hands-on experiments in almost every class, and leads many field and overnight trips.
