The 2013 CAP Award for Excellence in Teaching High School/CEGEP Physics (Atlantic) is awarded to

Jason Jennings, Sackville High School, for his excellence in teaching, with a focus on bringing more modern physics – along with more student-centered learning approaches – into his own high school classroom, and others around Nova Scotia and Canada. Along with continuously seeking out enrichment opportunities for his own students through field-trips to nearby Saint Mary's University to view the observatory and conduct a radioactivity lab, Jason Jennings has capitalized on his own participation in Perimeter Institute’s Einstein Plus summer workshops to become a workshop facilitator himself, and a teacher-workshop organizer in the Halifax region. He remains committed to improving his own educational background while teaching his students with a dedicated understanding of engagement techniques founded in Physics Education Research.

The 2012 CAP Award for Excellence in Teaching High School/CEGEP Physics (Atlantic) is awarded to

Brendan Kelly, Kinkora Regional High School, for his efforts over 35 years are consistently producing students of excellence in physics. Recognized as the unofficial dean of Physics teachers in P.E.I., teachers from across the province and the region seek out his advice for how to improve their teaching of physics students inside and outside the classroom. Brandon introduced the Advanced Placement Program in Physics several years ago, which resulted over time in improved scores and in a greater percentage of students from his school taking university physics.

The 2011 CAP Award for Excellence in Teaching High School/CEGEP Physics (Atlantic) is awarded to

Ian Fogarty, Riverview High School (Riverview, NB), his novel work in using technology to advance learning in physics. Ian is one of Canada's most innovative high school physics teachers. He is at the forefront of integrating technology and experiential learning. From getting students to employ stop-frame analysis of action movies to figure out whether or not the scenes could actually occur, to racing remote-controlled vehicles to understand acceleration, wind resistance, and centre-of-gravity, Ian Fogarty continually seeks new ways to engage a broader range of students. The CAP is proud to recognize Ian for his outstanding contributions.

The 2010 CAP Award for Excellence in Teaching High School/CEGEP Physics (Atlantic) is awarded to

Robyn McKenzie, Yarmouth Consolidated Memorial High School (Yarmouth, NS), for her ongoing excellence in teaching physics. A disproportionate number of physics graduate students, at places like MIT and Oxford, come from Yarmouth, NS. Those students identify a caring, passionate and effective high school physics teacher, Ms. Robyn McKenzie, as playing a pivotal role in their academic careers. As one former student wrote "She is nothing less than amazing". Colleagues mention her spirit and quiet leadership, and her constant quest to help others. Her principal wrote "She demands the best from her students, but she gives the best in return." Robyn has given countless weekend and night time hours to mentoring the school's award winning robotics teams. Even the Nova Scotia legislature cited her for "inspiring her students". It is certainly fitting that Robyn McKenzie is the first recipient of the CAP Award for Excellence in Teaching High School/CEGEP Physics from the Atlantic Region.
