Three MMSD teachers have been selected as recipients of the Outstanding Cooperating Teacher Rockwell Awards for 2017. Through the generosity of Roland and Ruth Rockwell, the University of Wisconsin-Madison is pleased to offer four $1000 awards to recognize excellent teachers who have chosen to pass on their expertise by providing professional experiences for UW-Madison student teachers.
The selection committee bases its decision on letters of recommendations that address each cooperating teacher’s commitment to mentoring future teachers through a process of effective guidance, feedback, and opportunities for reflection, as well as exemplary teaching ability by establishing an environment that instills a desire for students to learn, bringing enthusiasm into the classroom, and putting into practice quality and successful teaching techniques, methods and goals.
From the UW School of Education: "The collective service, performance, and achievements demonstrated by the nominees were outstanding. Your selection for the award should be viewed as an accomplishment of the highest order. We in the School of Education feel very fortunate that our students have had the benefit of your experience and guidance."
Recipients will receive their awards at a Partners in Education Banquet in May. Congratulations!
