Letter from the Principal
My name is Aura Street and I am the Principal of Mother Teresa School. We are very proud to be part of the Medicine Hat Catholic Board of Education (MHCBE) and look forward to showcasing all of the wonderful things our school has to offer throughout our website, newsletters, social media and much, much more!
At Mother Teresa School, we believe that all children can be successful; it’s just a matter of recognizing what that path to success looks like and adjusting our programming and teaching to align with those particular strengths and interests. We are a dedicated staff here at Mother Teresa School and we recognize the value and importance of each and every one of our students.
During this school year, we will continue exploring the STREAM philosophy throughout our school. STREAM is an educationally embedded approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Reading & Religion, the Arts (Humanities, Performing & Visual Arts) and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking. Students use the Engineering process to imagine, create, and plan open-ended problem solving which encourages students to learn from failure. Learning how to fail forward is a key component of this process. The end results are students who take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process.
Mother Teresa School would not be what it is without the support of our parents and community members. We encourage all stakeholders to continue to communicate with us at the school. Your opinions matter! Please also consider joining our School Council. It is a great way to stay involved in your child’s learning journey.
