The 2019 TEACHX Awards are to be held on the 23rd of October and will recognise some of the most outstanding teachers working in the profession across Queensland. The event is run by the Queensland College of Teachers (QCT) who have received over 200 nominations across six categories.
In the lead up to the event, the media arm of QCT has published pieces on nominees and I was most fortunate to be placed on what was ultimately a 10 week secondment to their area to write some of these. In the end I wrote just over half with 115 pieces all up.
I have previously posted about the five other categories Outstanding Contribution to Teaching, For Innovation in Teaching, Excellence in Beginning to Teach, Outstanding Contribution to School Community and Excellence in Teaching.
The final category published is Excellent Leadership in Teaching and Learning with 32 nominees of which I wrote pieces for eight.
The event is a huge undertaking requiring a lot of work from a group of strong professionals. Like all things done by this team, it is done to recognise some of the great work that teachers are doing and to help elevate the profession. Being called upon to write full time, pieces that support these aims was a dream come true for me.
The people I got to work with were experienced, talented and extremely hard working and I hope I effectively contributed and learnt a thing or two.
Feel free to check out all the nominees and comment on what you liked. All 32 have made an extraordinary contribution to bettering the education of students.
