ADTSEA TEACHER EXCELLENCE AWARD
In Honor of Dr. Francis Kenel
AMERICAN DRIVER AND TRAFFIC SAFETY EDUCATION ASSOCIATION
The American Driver and Traffic Safety Education Association’s (ADTSEA) Teacher Excellence Award (TEA) sponsored by The National Road Safety Foundation (NRSF), honors outstanding driver and traffic safety educators.
The non-profit National Road Safety Foundation has been a strong supporter of driver education throughout its more than 50 years. NRSF produces and distributes, at no charge, educational films, teaching manuals and public service campaigns for use by professionals in driver education, traffic safety, public health and law enforcement. More than a million copies of the Foundation's films and materials have been distributed nationwide. Based in New York City, NRSF was founded in 1962 by Fraydun Manocherian, who as a teen, lost two friends to a drunk driver.
For more information, visit www.nrsf.org or contact Michelle Anderson at 212-837-4854.
Candidates are nominated by an ADTSEA state-affiliate or regional director for outstanding teaching and service to driver and traffic safety education. Nominees must be a current ADTSEA member and an active member of their ADTSEA affiliated state or regional association for the past 4 years. Each ADTSEA state-affiliate may nominate one person for the TEA. ADTSEA members, from states not affiliated with ADTSEA, can be nominated by the regional director from the member’s region. Each state can only have one nominee. All nominees should be high quality teachers who deliver high quality driver education programs.
All TEA candidates will be recognized during the conference. Applications will be reviewed by the TEA committee and those individuals who are determined to be TEA recipients will be recognized and honored by their peers and will receive a stipend and plaque from ADTSEA. In addition, TEA recipients will receive a special identification name badge to wear during the conference.
Each nominee must complete and submit the form, Nomination for Teacher Excellence Award, as well as a resume', Power Point program demonstrating your innovation in teaching, and written responses to questions. Signatures by ADTSEA State or Regional affiliates officers are required. Submissions may be mailed electronically to email@example.com or postal mailed to Rich Hanson, 8116 SW Cedarcrest Street, Portland, OR 97223-1227. All materials are due May 15, 2017. Teacher Excellence Award documents may be accessed at http://adtsea.org/ADTSEA%20Teacher%20Excellence.html. Note - there is a “click here” to access some documents.
TEA award recipients are expected to present in one Secondary Division Session during the annual ADTSEA Conference by showcasing effective teaching strategies, skills development, and/or lesson ideas for classroom and/or in-car instruction that enhances the learner’s knowledge and/or skills in driver and traffic safety education, promotes national standards in traffic safety, and/or promotes traffic safety within the school and community.
We hope many people will promote the activity and help showcase great teachers. For additional information please feel free to contact Rich Hanson, facilitator, 503-502-8768, firstname.lastname@example.org.
