McGlothlin Celebration of Teaching
Save the Date for the 2017 McGlothlin Celebration of Teaching!
April 6, 2017
On this date, two outstanding teachers in the Blue Ridge Public Television viewing area will be recognized with a $25,000 award from the McGlothlin Foundation. This generous award has been provided annually since 1999 to honor the work of teachers in the region. It is a requirement that part of the award be used for international travel to enrich the awardees’ classrooms. For details about past winners and how to apply or nominate an outstanding teacher for this prestigious award, go to the Blue Ridge Public Television website here: http://www.blueridgepbs.org/educate/mcglothlin-awards-for-teaching-excellence.
Stay tuned for more information about this year’s keynote speaker and special related events to Celebrate the Teaching Profession on the Radford University Campus.
Congratulations to Alice Watson and Stephanie Miller
2016 McGlothlin Award Winners!
Alice Watson, is an elementary music teacher at Leesville Road Elementary School in Campbell County, VA. She is passionate about music and feels that it is just as important as any other content area. She plans on traveling to New Zealand as she has no music from there to use in her classroom. She wants to find it and bring it back to her students. Watson applied for the award in previous years and feels that each time she went through the application process it “made her a better person and made her look at what she does every day” in her teaching.
The secondary level winner, Stephanie Miller, teaches math at Colonial Heights Middle School in Kingsport, TN. She has also taught math at the elementary level. Her travel plans will take her to Switzerland -- to investigate why their students are rated so highly in math skills. While traveling, she plans on keeping connected to the students in her school through the Internet. Miller says that applying for the award provided for “self-reflection” and she learned to collaborate to identify better resources.
Mark your calendars for the 2017 McGlothlin Awards for Teaching Excellence, April 6, 2017. Blue Ridge Public Television will launch calls for entry in September 2016 for the 2017 nomination and judging process.
