Mayor Gray, together with Acting State Superintendent of Education Jesus Aguirre, D.C. Public Charter School Board executive director Scott Pearson, and Two Rivers Public Charter School executive director Jessica Wodatch today awarded middle school math teacher William Day the OSSE Teacher of the Year Award. The teacher was surprised with the news at school assembly this morning.

Mr. Day was nominated for the honor by his peers. A panel of education leaders then evaluates candidates through a procedure that includes classroom observation, interviews, and written submissions.

The OSSE press release announcing the award includes the following information about Mr. Day’s career:

“Mr. Day has been commended by parents and colleagues for his innovative teaching style and student-led assessments and analyses to stimulate classroom learning. Since joining Two Rivers Charter School in 2011 as a mathematics teacher, he also served in various roles including being a mentor, master teacher, and learning lab facilitator. Moreover, as a Math for America fellow, William conducts professional development workshops for early career math teachers in the District and seminars on designing problem-based tasks.

Other city finalists include Laurel Horn of Thurgood Marshall Academy and William Taylor of Wheatley Educational Campus.

Today, I wrote about recently attending the 2013 Fall Showcase of Student Learning at the school.
