Local Teacher-Librarian Receives Provincial Award!

Jennifer Fox Award


A local teacher-librarian at Dawson Creek Secondary (South Peace Campus) received a prestigious provincial award from the BC Teacher-Librarian Association (BCTLA).  

 Jennifer Fox was honoured with the BC New Teacher Librarian of the Year Award, in  Richmond BC. This award was developed for teacher-librarians like Jennifer, who make an outstanding contribution to teacher-librarianship and beyond. Taking on the challenge at the South Peace Campus, Jennifer collaborated with the school administration, staff and Facilities to create a vision of what the Library could be as a Library Learning Hub.

With over 25 years teaching experience, and 4 years working specifically as a Teacher-Librarian, she wanted to create a space in the school that was flexible and met today's student needs. The South Peace Campus Library Learning Hub now has one more class space, laptops, rolling shelves and furniture, as well as comfortable seating areas and updated resources. It is a very busy place with at least 2 classes using the library every block. 

Receiving an award in School District #59, recognizes the leadership and service to the profession through the BCTLA and related organizations. This award recognizes the commitment to professional growth, continuing education, research and/or participation. The sharing of ideas and resources was identified as a major factor in this award's recognition.
