Regional Recipient

Ernie Paholek

Ernie Paholek has had an impact far beyond the walls of Londonderry Junior High School in Edmonton, Alberta, where he teaches. His methodical approach to teaching mathematics has been incorporated into a series of textbooks for Grades 7, 8 and 9 that are used in more than 750 Canadian schools as well as in foreign schools as far abroad as Puerto Rico. Both his students and the teachers who use his textbooks praise his approach of setting clear expectations for what students should achieve.
