Congratulations to Dr. Keith Eric Benson, JAG Specialist on receiving the Teacher of Courage and Conscience Award!
Teacher of Courage and Conscience Award was created to recognize teachers who improve access to high-quality education for those students who are currently least well-served; advocate for the education profession; encourage student curiosity and love of learning, use innovative teaching strategies, and engage students in meaningful problem-solving, knowledge-production, or artistic work; and embody and put into practice the values of Villanova University: Veritas, Unitas, Caritas. Recipients of the award are well-respected by their colleagues, beloved by their students, and recognized as teacher activists or agents of change in their local communities.
On Tuesday May 9th, during teacher appreciation week, the Department of Education and Counseling at Villanova University awarded the 2017 Teacher of Courage and Conscience Award at our 59th annual cooperating personnel dinner to three local teachers.
