Wayne County Schools are proud to have three teachers selected to be included in the Excellence in Teaching Virtual Ceremony hosted by Campbellsville College. Congratulations to Walker Early Learning Center Kindergarten Teacher Becky Lewis, Wayne County Middle School 7th Grade Math Teacher Braxton Shearer, and Wayne County High School Grades 9-12 Math Teacher Liz McClain who were recognized for this prestigious award.
LIke many of Wayne County's educators, these three teachers being honored use a variety of methods of effective instruction, devote time and energy to improving professional competence, apply energy and enthusiasm to teaching, apply imagination and originality in meeting students' needs, help others to gain professional competence, demonstrate efficient scheduling of time, thoroughness of time, thoroughness in handling assignments, and reliability, and demonstrate good moral character.
Instead of being recognized at Campbellsville College, this year the annual event was presented in a virtual video, due to the pandemic. You may click this link to access it: https://www.dropbox.com/s/2poaaexis96g99j/Sequence%2002_1.mp4?dl=0 .
You may also find it on the Campbellsville University website here: https://www.campbellsville.edu/academics/schools-and-colleges/school-of-education/excellence-in-teaching/ , along with the 2021 program.
Campbellsville School of Education Administrator Elizabeth Franklin wished to thank local teachers for the infinite amount of patience they have shown, while they fashioned this video. In a perfect world the 2021 ceremony would have been face-to-face. "In lieu of that option, we have created something we hope communicates the extraordinary amount of respect and awe we have for the teachers who not only endured the past school year, but embraced its many challenges, and excelled."
“The professionals we honor this year were able to create nurturing classroom environments, even when there were no students in the seats. Truly there has never been a more appropriate year to honor the tireless dedication of teachers,” said Franklin.
“We recognize that the 205 teachers in this ceremony are a small fraction of the number of devoted individuals who persevered and made their classrooms, their schools, and their communities stronger. Thank you for all of your efforts and steadfastness,” noted Franklin.
