Eastern Christian School has a progressive professional development program for teachers. Because EC values mature Christian teachers who are excellent, professional, and nurturing, we encourage and support our teachers in their professional development.
We are very pleased to announce that Cynthia Adair, ECHS ESL teacher has been designated 2015 Eastern Christian Master Teacher. She joins Paul Beverly, ECHS Social Studies & Humanities teacher; Carol Byma, ECES Fourth Grade Teacher, who were designated Master Teachers in 2014, and Terry Allen, ECMS Social Studies/History teacher; Joyce Bruer, ECMS Language Arts Teacher; and Donna Hoogerhyde, ECES Fourth Grade Teacher who were designated Master Teachers in 2013.
Senior Level Teachers who have earned a master’s degree or its equivalent plus an additional 15 credits may apply annually to become a Master Teacher after a nomination from an administrator or supervisor. A committee composed of the Director of Curriculum and Instruction, the teacher’s Principal, and a selected experienced educator review the application, interview the candidate and evaluate a required teaching portfolio. This is the fourth year of this recognition program.
We are very pleased to recognize and congratulate these teachers on achieving this significant professional accomplishment!
