Lake Ozark, Mo. – On Wednesday, April 27, the Missouri Association for Colleges of Teacher Education (MACTE) honored 45 outstanding beginning teachers as part of the spring conference held at The Lodge of the Four Seasons in Lake Ozark, MO.  Over 31 of Missouri’s private and public institutions of higher education, offering state and nationally recognized programs, honored these professionals who completed education programs at their respective institutions. Award recipients were selected based on evaluations of outstanding graduates completed by their college or university, and recommendations from the school district which deemed the teacher as highly effective in their first two years in the classroom. Each recipient was awarded an engraved plaque to display in their classroom.

Daniel Miller, math teacher at Marion County R-II in Philadelphia, MO, and Katie Miller, science teacher at Hannibal High School, were honored as graduates of the Hannibal-LaGrange University Teacher Education Program.

Amanda Pryor, first grade teacher at Lake Road Elementary in Poplar Bluff, MO, was also recognized. Pryor graduated from HLGU’s Teacher Education Program at Three Rivers College in Poplar Bluff.
