Champion Teachers 2013

Printer-friendly version

Who inspires and encourages your kids?

There are some amazing teachers in our community who help students prepare for the Bay Area Science and Engineering Fair as well as school and board fairs. BASEF initiated the Champion Teacher Recognition Awards to recognize and honour teachers who go above and beyond expectations in their efforts to teach students how to do project-based science and to mentor them as they prepare their projects for BASEF. A panel of BASEF Organizing Committee members select the Champion Teacher Recognition Award winners from among those nominated online by their peers, parents and students. Each winner receives a plaque and a cash award to be used in their classroom.

"spends an exorbitant amount of time providing resources and guidance for her students..stays late, sacrifices lunches, and works around each student's schedule to provide amazing opportunities and support."

 "in 3 years of Dr. Kahama taking our students to became highly esteemed and something our students began to anticipate...we have been a champion school 2 years in a row."

"her efforts need to be rewarded for her hard work and her dedication; she is honestly one in a million."
