Celebrating and Honoring Teachers and the Teaching Profession
Liu, Karen
Childhood Education, v84 n5 p294-A Ann 2008
On April 30, 2008, at the White House Rose Garden, President Bush announced that Michael Geisen, a middle school 7th-grade science teacher from Prineville, Oregon, would be the recipient of the 2008 National Teacher of the Year honor. The National Teacher of the Year is selected by a National Selection Committee, which consists of 15 major national educational organizations, with the Association for Childhood Education International (ACEI) doing its part as one of the Selection Committee members. In this article, the ACEI president recognizes Geisen as the 2008 National Teacher of the Year as well as the many other outstanding teachers who work diligently and provide the best learning for their students. ACEI has a long history of honoring teachers and valuing the teaching profession. One of ACEI's newly approved Strategic Goals is "to promote excellence in teaching and learning by influencing national and global policies, standards, and pedagogy." In order to promote excellence in teaching and learning, ACEI members must participate in the Week of the Classroom Teacher and World Teachers' Day campaign to draw public attention to the important roles that teachers play for children's learning and within the global society.
