ASU Student Awarded State Education Honor

September 07, 2012

Angelo State University teacher education student Heather Watson has been named an “Exceptional Teacher Candidate” by the statewide Quest for Quality program.

A senior from Helotes, Watson was one of 33 students selected from 49 nominees submitted to the program by 16 Texas universities.  The honor is based on blind narratives sent by the students and their universities to a panel of six state and national reviewers.

Students were judged on the depth of their subject area content and knowledge of instructional strategies; excellence in planning and instructional delivery in several areas; and their ability to create and maintain a positive, equitable and engaging classroom environment.

Honorees will receive congratulatory letters and certificates, and will be featured on the Quest for Quality website.

The Quest for Quality initiative, based in The Woodlands, is designed to highlight exceptional quality in university-based teacher preparation in Texas.  The Center for Research, Evaluation and Advancement of Teacher Education (CREATE) and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board collaborate on the program that is funded through a grant from the Sid W. Richardson Foundation to the College for All Texans Foundation.
