Athens State Alum in Education Receives New Teacher Award

April 21, 2014

Kiley Soule, a recent Athens State University Education graduate, received the Maitland P. Simmons Memorial Award for New Teachers from the National Science Teachers Association (NTSA). Soule is in her first year of teaching science at New Century Technology High School in Huntsville.

The award consists of up to $1,000 to be used to attend the annual National Conference. This year’s conference was held in Boston. Recipients were invited to attend a variety of workshops and presentations that were of particular interest to new teachers at the annual National Conference. “As a first year teacher, I already know that I have so much to learn still about many things involving the classroom, assessments, literacy, and integrating technology,” stated Soule. “Most of these things will come with time and exploration. Over the 3 days, I attended 7 sessions ranging from general education information to technology integration to literacy and assessments.” .

This prestigious annual award is only received by 25 educators throughout the nation and provides selected K-12 teachers in their first five years of teaching with funds to attend the annual National Conference on Science Education. Award recipients will be mentored, tracked, and provided with continuing opportunities for meaningful involvement with NSTA and its activities.
