Each year, the Shorewood Excellence in Teaching Award recognizes teachers who demonstrate a deep commitment to academic and artistic achievement, model professional and innovative teaching practices, and inspire students, colleagues, and the community through their dedication and leadership.
For the 2020-21 school year, the honorees selected were:
The District proudly congratulates these honorees for their hard work and dedication to the District and the community.* Each individual winner receives $5,000 and the group winners receive $10,000.
Finally, the selection committee chooses the recipients based on the following criteria: Student Achievement, Inspiration, and Culture & Community. Teachers must demonstrate characteristics such as fostering academic and personal growth for all students, engaging students through creative and innovative approaches to learning, and collaborating with colleagues to make Shorewood Schools a better place to learn and teach.
*Due to Covid-19, there will not be an in-person awards ceremony this year, but the winners of the 2019-20 and 2020-21 school years will be honored at a combined ceremony next summer with the 2021-22 winners. Details on this event will be forthcoming.
