Capital Area School Development Association (CASDA) Scholars’ Recognition Program “Most Influential Teacher” 2007. 7 years ago
Winning the Award for Excellence in teaching from the University of Toronto was a gratifying experience. It hasn’t really helped me professionally and I find that ironic.
The reason for the win had to do with making them stretch, coaching students excel, recognizing teching is about performance and knowledge transfer and lastly helping the school achieve some of it’s goals. 9 years ago
This isn’t so much a goal as an aspiration. I hope to someday be good enough at my craft that I feel like I can warp young minds for the better. Although awards are arbitrarily given, this is a fairly good indicator as to how I rank with my peers.
Life isn’t a competition, but, well, it is. If you can excel against your fellow man, you must be doing something right. 9 years ago
