Teacher of the Year Finalist in 2015
TASL is working very hard to spread the word to administrators and school boards across Texas that school librarians are, indeed, teachers. Toward that end, the Texas Teacher of the Year program is allowing us to come on board as a recognized teacher organization in support of their program. This gives TASL the opportunity to provide judges for the regional teacher of the year awards, as well as provide a judge for the state's Texas Teacher of the Year program.
So how can you help? If you've received an honor of any kind at your campus, please add your name to the Google Doc below. Don't be shy! Were you nominated for a TCEA award? Tell us. Were you a campus Teacher of the Year? Let us know! Did you get recognized by the HEB Excellence in Education Awards program? Shout it out!
And the award can be a local award, too, like San Antonio's Excel Award, which is sponsored by a local television station.
When school librarians are honored as teachers, it strengthens our profession. Let us celebrate YOU by adding your name to our School Librarian Hall of Fame! We want to spread the word that school librarians make a difference everyday as teachers!
