McNair-Lee wins the Rubenstein Award for Highly Effective Teaching

 
 

Dowan McNair-Lee, Adjunct Professor of Education, was recently named a recipient of the Rubenstein Award for Highly Effective Teaching.  This award honors DCPS educators who first have been nominated by other DCPS educators as well as by DCPS students, parents, and community members and who then have been selected by a panel at the central DCPS office to be recognized for their outstanding teaching.  In addition to her position as an adjunct professor at Trinity, Professor McNair-Lee, who is also a graduate of Trinity’s Master of Education in Reading program (’07), is a school-wide enrichment model resource teacher at Stuart-Hobson Middle School.

Also recognized with a Rubenstein Award for Highly Effective Teaching are two other Trinity alumnae:

  • Belinda Omenitsch, College of Arts & Sciences, ’93 (B.A. in business administration with a minor in education), and School of Education, ’94 (M.A.T.), who is a Read 180 teacher at Truesdell Education Campus
  • Amy C. Wertheimer, School of Education, ’02 (M.Ed. in computer education), who is a 2nd gade teacher at Watkins Elementary School

These three recipients will receive their awards at the annual Standing Ovation for DC Teachers on November 4, 2013, an event hosted by the DC Public Education Fund and held at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
