A sixth-grade teacher at Batesville Junior High School Charter has been recognized as Outstanding Mentor Teacher by the Arkansas Association of Teacher Educators (ArATE).
Angela Adams received the recognition at the ArATE annual conference at the University of Arkansas Pine Bluff last week.
ArATE says Outstanding Mentor Teachers are selected each year from among nominees identified by educator preparation programs across the state. The award is given to recognize the expertise and reward excellence in guiding and supporting a teacher candidate or intern in the classroom and to acknowledge valuable service as a partner in teacher candidate preparation.
“Lyon College’s Teacher Education Program is very fortunate to work with teachers such as Angela Adams in preparing our teacher candidates,” said Karin Brown, assistant professor of elementary education at Lyon College. “She goes above and beyond as a mentor to them and always exemplifies excellence in teaching in her classroom.”
Award recipients must also have five years of successful teaching and at least four semesters of service as a mentor teacher.
