2011 Educator Prize Winners
The Waterford Educator Prize was created in 1995 to honor members of the Faculty for the quality of their teaching and for their professional contributions to their colleagues and the School. Faculty and Staff submit nominations in the Fall, and the winners are announced in December. Each receives a monetary gift toward the pursuit of an interest or a dream that is important to that individual. The winners are asked to speak at the April All Schools Faculty Meeting, reflecting on their teaching — how they came to it, how they keep it vital, and insights they have acquired along the way.
Congratulations to the 2011 winners, named below. We have included for each a snippet from the tribute by Head of School Nancy Heuston.
Paula Getz: “Generous among her grade-mates and colleagues, witty and quick, never one to draw attention to herself or her accomplishments, Paula is a trusted member of our faculty and an articulate spokesman for the School she calls hers.”
Andrew Cole: “Scrupulous in his attention to each student and to every question, his classroom is a place where young scientists develop tools to probe and to explore.”
Greg Miles: “He cares deeply that every part runs smoothly, so that the School’s resources can be tightly focused on every child learning, every day.”
