The College Board is proud to recognize six new SpringBoard Teachers of Distinction. Each year SpringBoard recognizes teachers who demonstrate effective teaching practices and successful implementation of SpringBoard in the Classroom. College Board Teachers of Distinction represent the best in the profession and exemplify teaching excellence.
Our 2018 Teachers of Distinction include:
- Sarah Arceneaux, L.J. Alleman Middle School, Lafayette Parish School System (LA)
- Sylvia Ellison, Spoto High School, Hillsborough County Public Schools (FL)
- Karen Kennedy, Gig Harbor High School, Peninsula School District (WA)
- LeAnn Klepzig, Walker Valley High School, Bradley County Schools (TN)
- John Murray, Sachse High School, Garland Independent School District (TX)
- Amanda Shackelford, Judice Middle School, Lafayette Parish School System (LA)
After a rigorous application process, these teachers were selected to represent and serve as a model teacher for the SpringBoard program. As part of this recognition, these teachers will become members of an exclusive teacher advisory council. They’ll have the opportunity to review new materials, participate in pilot opportunities, and attend the SpringBoard Annual Conference and Advance Placement Annual Conference. Their contributions will help inform product updates and enhancements.
“Each of our Teachers of Distinction brings a unique perspective and set of skills to our advisory, to help guide our work. Together, these teachers form a community where they share their expertise and learn from one another to build upon their success,” said Doug Waugh, Executive Director of SpringBoard and Pre-AP Programs at the College Board. “We salute each of these teachers for providing a meaningful and nurturing educational environment that promotes academic achievement for students.”
