KCU Teachers Recognized
May 16th, 2013 - KCU
The Keeran School of Education from Kentucky Christian University wishes to recognize three of their alumni for outstanding accomplishments in the field of teacher education. We are very proud of these individuals and what they bring to the educational communities in which they serve.
Jeff Aulick completed his student teaching at East Carter High School and received his degree from Kentucky Christian University in the spring of 1992. He completed studies at Northern Kentucky University and Xavier University and spent 18 years in the Pendleton County School system. His experience in Pendleton County, which included several areas of leadership, has helped prepare him for his next move. In July of this year, he was selected as the new superintendent of Bracken County Schools in Kentucky. Mr. Aulick has a strong commitment to the teachers and students of Bracken County.
Jim Hamm, a 2003 graduate of the Keeran School of Education and a fifth-grade teacher at Prichard Elementary in the Carter County School District, received the Campbellsville Excellence in Teaching Award in February of this year. Mr. Hamm was nominated by his principal Jason McGlone and then selected by a committee who chose one nominee for each level (elementary, middle school and high school). This award recognizes the quality of teaching in schools in Kentucky. The candidates are rewarded for their leadership and dedication to the teaching profession. Sherry Horsley, the Director of Curriculum and Instruction of the Carter County Schools, says of all the recipients, “I am extremely proud to have colleagues as effective and wonderful as you. Thank you for all you do to serve the children of Carter County.”
Shanna Brammell, a first-grade teacher at Prichard Elementary in the Carter County School District, received her National Board Teacher Certificate. This certificate is awarded by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards to candidates who meet rigorous requirements set forth by a board of classroom teachers, school administrators, school board leaders, governors, and state legislators. “The process requires intense self-reflection and analysis of one’s own practice” (EPSB).
Mrs. Brammell also received the Deanna McDavid Teacher of the Year Award. This award is given annually by the Grayson Area Chamber of Commerce and is given in honor of a former teacher Deanna McDavid who died as a result of a school shooting at the East Carter High School in 1993. Mrs. Brammell says about her time at KCU, “I give KCU the credit for molding me into the teacher I am today!”
We would like to say congratulations to each of our wonderful Alumni for displaying excellence in teacher education!
