2016 Humanities Texas Outstanding Teaching Awards
Do you know an outstanding teacher in your school or community? Nominate a deserving Texas educator for a 2016 Humanities Texas Outstanding Teaching Award!
Humanities Texas presents annual awards to recognize and encourage excellence in teaching in Texas schools. In 2016, Humanities Texas will present a total of fifteen awards to exceptional Texas K–12 humanities teachers in three different categories:
- Twelve teachers across the state will be selected to receive the Outstanding Teaching of the Humanities Award.
- One Texas history teacher will be selected to receive the Linden Heck Howell Outstanding Teaching of Texas History Award.
- Two additional teachers will be selected for the Award for Outstanding Early-Career Teaching, which recognizes exemplary contributions of humanities teachers in Texas elementary, middle, and high schools who have completed three or fewer years of teaching.
- All award winners will receive a $5,000 prize, with an additional $500 for their schools to purchase humanities-based instructional materials.
How to Nominate a Teacher
To nominate a teacher for a 2016 Humanities Texas Outstanding Teaching Award, please complete the online nomination form by Friday, December 11, 2015. The nomination form and instructions can be found on the Humanities Texas website: http://www.humanitiestexas.org/content/2016-nomination-form-outstanding-teaching-awards
Humanities Texas will contact each nominated teacher with instructions on how to apply for the award. Applications will be due February 10, 2016. Winners will be announced in May of 2016.
Remember that ANY student is able to receive help in content mastery. Teachers can start sending students down to room 1046 after instruction (with a Content Mastery pass). Please send any supplemental aides or resources students may need to complete an assignment with them when they come.
Questions? See/email Coach Walsh.
Please be reminded that lesson plans are to be posted in Eduphoria/Forethought by 8:00 AM every Monday.
Have you sent your first parent email out? If so, thank you! If not, please remember to do so at least once every two weeks. If you are having issues with the system, please let us know so we can assist you.
Leadership Team will meet on Tuesday in room 3030.
Please be reminded that all teachers are expected to be outside their classroom doors to help monitor hallways during transition times. A small thing like staff visibility has a tremendous impact on student decision-making.
We will have our CSHS Parent Open House on Monday, October 5th, beginning at 6:30 PM. A modified bell schedule with 8 minute classes and 5 minute passing periods will be used. More information and a bell schedule will be delivered as the event nears.
Are you a club sponsor? Please let Mrs. Costenbader know when you will be meeting so it can be posted in the Daily Announcement. Please plan initial meetings within the first three weeks of school so we can get students involved early.
Workroom volunteers are available to assist with copying/laminating request. Request forms can be located in the workroom (rm. 1039). Submit requests to the appropriate bin in the workroom and requested jobs will be returned upon completion.
To have your teacher website linked to our campus site or if any of the information listed on the Staff Directory page is incorrect, please complete this form. Randi Costenbader will get it updated ASAP.
