APPLICATION DEADLINE FOR 2012 CHAIRS FOR TEACHING EXCELLENCE EXTENDED TO AUGUST 3
Fort Worth, Texas – The application deadline for Fort Worth ISD’s 2012 Academic Chairs for Teaching Excellence is now August 3, 2012. This program recognizes outstanding classroom teachers in FWISD. Recipients are awarded the Title of Chair for Teaching Excellence and a $5,000 honorarium.
The Chairs for Teaching Excellence program was established in the FWISD in 1994. It is modeled after the university-level chair program and is designed to recognize and reward exemplary teachers. This program is unique because of its role in a public school setting and for its rigorous selection process.
Teachers may be nominated by parents, principals or colleagues but each nominee must complete a lengthy application and collect written recommendations. If selected for further consideration, the teacher will be interviewed and then must present a teaching demonstration to the selection committee. There are separate selection committees for each Chair.
Selectees are honored at an awards luncheon at the conclusion of the selection process. Teachers selected as Chairs are encouraged to pursue further education and training and share knowledge and expertise with colleagues.
Applications are available here. The deadline is close of business, August 3, 2012.
