Kristin Peterson of Sisler High School in Winnipeg has influenced educational practices in her school and province. She was instrumental in creating several innovative programs at Sisler. Single-sex classes for compulsory courses have resulted in substantial grade increases for students. A modified math course using individualized learning programs, specialized texts, and frequent skills testing reduces early failure in this important subject. Her latest project is an English program to improve students' communication and literacy skills. Ms. Peterson also works to improve education in Manitoba, promoting the teaching of literature, the Mathematics Fair and Gifted Student Institute. She has co-authored English curriculum support documents and home-schooling reform legislation.
