2013 Excellence in Teaching Awards Nationally Published Articles

Posted on August 6th, 2013

Every year we are honored to award 10 outstanding Adventist teachers throughout North America – this year was no different. We were inspired and amazed by the testimonies told by co-workers, friends, parents of students, administrators and the teachers themselves about the great work being done at each school. We want to thank the teachers for continuing to raise the bar in Adventist education – you are a blessing and an inspiration to all of us!

To see a quick bio of all 10 teachers, you can read the Adventist Today website publication. The winners were also recognized in the October NAD Edition of Adventist World News. Read that article here.
