Received the Premier’s Award for Teaching Excellence at the government house in Victoria.
R.E. Mountain Secondary Planning 10 and grade transition 12 teacher Karen Larsen received flowers and well wishes from Langley Board of Education chairman Joan Bech on Tuesday. Earlier this month Larsen received the Premier’s Award for Excellence in Teaching.
Larsen compared the accolade to building a house, where the builder gets all the credit but, she added, nothing would happen without all the tradespeople, or support staff, working hard behind the scenes.
“My name is on the award, but really, it belongs to Langley Secondary,” said Larsen, who recently transferred from LSS to Mountain.
