Do you know of an amazing music educator who is using technology in the classroom to teach music?
TI:ME is pleased to announce that it is presenting the annual Mike Kovins Teacher of the Year Award and needs TI:ME members to nominate and honor a an outstanding music teacher at the TI:ME national conference.
The award is called the TI:ME Mike Kovins Teacher of the Year Award in honor of the late Mike Kovins, a founding member of TI:ME whose dedication to music technology in education helped lay the groundwork for TI:ME's programs. The Teacher of the Year Award will be given out at the 2016 TI:ME National Conference in San Antonio, TX in February, 2016.
The award was established in the memory of Mike Kovins, an early advocate for TI:ME with a vision for music technology. Among numerous other contributions, Mike Kovins was active in the National Association of Music Merchants, and was instrumental in helping that organization with their early support for TI:ME.
To be eligible for the annual award, an educator must have at least three years of professional teaching experience or research in music technology and must currently be teaching K-12, collegiate or adult students. Each nominee will then be asked to complete an application supporting their eligibility. A committee of previous TI:ME Teacher of the Year recipients evaluates and selects the award winner. This person will receive an award at the keynote presentation of the TI:ME conference held in conjunction with TMEA, and a diner celebrating their accomplishment.
The deadline for entries is December 31, 2015.
