“It’s definitely humbling,” Tyler said in a school district press release. “It’s an honour to be recognized, but it speaks to my team and the teachers’ willingness to create flexibility for meeting the different needs of our students on their individual pathways to success.”

Tyler was recognized by the Learning Partnership’s national selection committee, which includes leaders from government,
business and education. Nominees chosen demonstrate innovation and entrepreneurial spirit and have a proven ability to find creative solutions and opportunities for students, according to a Learning Partnership press release.

NWSS now boasts a Learning Commons, makerspaces, 3D printers, and several hundred laptops in order to better support the effective implementation of the revised provincial curriculum.
