Congratulations to Ms. Kelli Barnett , recipient of 2010 Classroom Teacher Excellence Award!!



TACEI (Tennessee Association of Childhood Education International) 2010 Week of the Classroom Teacher Award winners announced:

In conjunction with the Week of the Classroom Teacher, the Tennessee Association for Childhood Education International annually recognizes excellence in teaching and rewards Tennessee classroom teachers for their work and dedication to the education of children from birth through early adolescence.

Nominations from across the state were received for teachers who have demonstrated excellence in the classroom. A committee from each region of Tennessee made the final selection of one teacher from each of the four age divisions: Infancy/Toddler, Pre-Kindergarten/Kindergarten, Elementary and Middle School.  Ms. Kelli received the award for the East Tennessee Elementary division.

Recipients are presented certificates and one-year memberships in ACEI. They also have an opportunity to participate at the TACEI 2011 fall conference “Hall of Excellence” and to share their success stories with others across Tennessee.

University School is proud to have Ms. Kelli as our second grade instructor.  She has taught at University School for the past eight years.  She is a "home-grown" Buc, having received her Bachelor of Arts degree and Master of Arts in Teaching degrees from ETSU.  Ms. Kelli's students love and respect her.  Everyone's favorite and "most remembered" project is "The Butterfly Life Cycle", an awesome educational opportunity which Ms. Kelli provides for our students each year.    

Thanks, Ms. Kelli for being our Teacher of Excellence!!!!
