Matt McGuire was one of 17 teachers who received an R.E.B. Award for Teaching Excellence. Mr. McGuire will use his $7,000 award to travel to major Canadian cities, including Ottawa, Montreal, and Toronto, to visit Canadian political institutions and meet with major public officials.
Award winners were nominated by parents, students, other teachers, and the community at large. Nominations for next year's award-winners will be due in Feb. 2014.
