Pauline Broderick Recognized for Teaching Excellence
Congratulations to Pauline Broderick, Faculty of Education Instructor who recently was awarded the Olive Beatrice Stanton Award for Teaching Excellence at the University of Manitoba Spring Convocation on May 31, 2012.
Ms. Broderick is recognized as an educator who is dedicated to the arts and the improvement of her community, and instills in her students the same passion for drama and knowledge she holds.
Ms. Broderick began teaching at the University of Manitoba’s Faculty of Education in 2005 with a focus on arts education. She inspires her students with a passion for the arts, which she has carried with her from her days as a teacher at the Prairie Theater Exchange Theater School. While there, she expanded the theater’s role in using drama as a means of developing life skills and social awareness through her work with he Choices Program, an anti-gang initiative, and Upward Bound, an innovative adult education program. She also served as the Education Director at the Manitoba Theater for Young People where she taught a range of classes to children, teens and adults. In the course of her career her varied experience in the public school system Pembina Crest School, Garden City Collegiate, Oak Pak High School and west Kildonan Collegiate allowed her to hone her pedagogical skills and understand the power of arts to engage and educate. Like all good actresses, Broderick is always present in the moment and responsive to it, and there is no better way to connect with her students and inspire them.
