Teacher of the Year

Hey everyone out there in the blogosphere! This will be my first blog-type post on the internet since livejournal became passé (2004). So, I’d like to talk about Teacher of the Year 2010. In the fall, I became involved with the group in the Society that was responsible for helping to choose the Teacher of the Year at Lewis & Clark. We collect letters from the entire student body and with their guidance, choose what Lewis & Clark students believe to be the best teacher at the school.

I truly believe that this is one of the most important functions that the society performs and its both a privilege and a responsibility to be part of the Teacher of the Year committee. We’ve spent a lot of time revising our protocol for selecting the winner and we think that we have nearly perfected the selection process. Yet, without Lewis & Clark’s student’s letters, it will all be for naught! So please, if you’re reading this, and have had a teacher who has made an incredible impact on your education, send in a letter. Recognize your favorite professor! They like it when you do, I promise.

For the criteria that submissions will be graded on, check out this site: http://www.pamplinfellows.org/toty/criteria/

I’m really excited to read everyone’s letters. Well that’s my plug for Teacher of the Year submissions. Hope everyone has been having a great semester so far, Spring is just around the corner! I’m stoked.
