Dawn Smith, Central High School's English Department Chairperson and St. Joseph Teacher of the Year, spoke at the annual Fall English Dinner on Wednesday, September 23. In attendance were MWSU administrators, teachers, and St. Joseph language arts teachers, many of whom are EFLJ alumni.
In her talk, "Teaching for Excellence," Ms. Smith pushed the audience to challenge themselves as teachers to challenge their own assumptions about what we do, why, and whether it works. It was an evening of food, discussion, and the chance to catch up with colleagues across the city.
Thanks to Tom Pankiewicz and Jane Frick for planning the event!
