Paris High School’s Michael Rhodes Wins Texas ASCD T.E.A.C.H. Award
Selected as the 2016 secondary level winner of the Texas Association of Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD) T.E.A.C.H. Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Classroom is Paris High School’s Automotive Technology teacher Michael Rhodes.
The T.E.A.C.H. (Texas Educators Achieving Classroom Honors) Award recognizes educators with fewer than five years of classroom experience who generate high-achieving students through inspiring, mentoring and challenging them through the use of effective classroom strategies.
“I’m honored they named me as the winner of Texas ASCD’s T.E.A.C.H. Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Classroom,” Rhodes said. “I am privileged to have been nominated by our Career & Technical Education Director, Dr. Angela Chadwick.”
Chadwick said, “Michael Rhodes serves as an inspiration to not only his students but to other education professionals as well. Our teachers recognize his technical abilities and request his support often.”
Rhodes will be recognized during the Texas ASCD 2016 Annual Conference award luncheon on Nov. 1 in Dallas. He will also receive a one-year Texas ASCD membership and recognition in the Leadership publication, highlighting his classroom achievements.
