TMIS Teacher Wins John A. Baker Distance Learning Award
Trinity Meadows Intermediate School teacher Anna Tyson has earned the John A. Baker Memorial Award for Excellence in K-12 Distance Learning from the Texas Distance Learning Association.
Texas Distance Learning Association (TxDLA) is the leading Texas membership association for distance learning professionals who have a strong interest in keeping abreast of ideas, technologies, and content that will help them develop and maintain leading-edge distance learning programs and products.
The Baker Award recognizes K-12 teachers for their work in the distance learning arena and helps provide more opportunities to reach students through the use of educational telecommunications and distance learning technologies. It is open to any K-12 teacher working public, private, or charter school settings in Texas.
“I am truly honored to receive this award,” Tyson said. “Technology is not always an easy thing to work with in the classroom, but I value the engagement it provides my students. I know the value of technology is so important in this day and age, and I want my students to feel as prepared for their future as I can make it.”
As part of the award, Tyson will receive $500 cash, complimentary registration to the Annual TxDLA Meeting/Conference, and complimentary TxDLA membership for the year. She is the first recipient from Keller ISD. She will accept the award at a ceremony on April 8 during the TxDLA Conference.
