BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Seven outstanding public school teachers from Indiana have received the Indiana University School of Education Martha Lea and Bill Armstrong Teacher Educator Award for the 2006-07 academic year. Nominated by district superintendents and principals, and chosen by a committee of IU faculty and former recipients of the Armstrong award, each of these honorees has shown exemplary skill and talent as an educator.
The 2006-07 Armstrong Teacher Educator Award recipients are Andrew Craig, Tuttle Middle School, Crawfordsville; Christine Floyd, Brownsburg East Middle School, Brownsburg; Andrew Himelick, Towne Meadow Elementary School, Carmel; Alex Holtz, Elkhart Memorial High School, Elkhart; Mary Malloy, Penn High School, Mishawaka; Marjorie Ramey, Carey Ridge Elementary School, Westfield; Sheryl Slater-Seabrook, North Wayne Elementary, Indianapolis.
Award recipients will work with and lend their expertise to students studying to be teachers. The Armstrong Teacher Educators also will have the opportunity to participate in professional development activities to advance individual goals and those of their schools and corporations.
"To emphasize the importance of collaboration between the Indiana University School of Education and the P-12 community, the Armstrong Teacher Educators work with our undergraduates in courses, field experience sites, student teaching seminars, research projects and other activities that are mutually beneficial," says Diana Lambdin, the Martha Lea and Bill Armstrong Chair in Teacher Education and associate dean for teacher education. "These outstanding, experienced educators offer our teacher education students a perspective that only real, practicing teachers can provide. Working together, we help assure high-quality teachers for P-12 classrooms."
The awards were made possible through the Martha Lea and Bill Armstrong Fund in Teacher Education, established through a gift from Cook Group Companies Inc. of Bloomington. The endowment also supports the Martha Lea and Bill Armstrong Chair in Teacher Education.
