Spotlight on Engagement nominations
Profound learning results from a rich curriculum and engaging work. Alamo Heights ISD awards the Spotlight on Engagement to teachers who exemplify this formula. The purpose of the Spotlight on Engagement is twofold: (1) celebrate teachers who have designed engaging work for students and (2) deepen our collective understanding of student engagement, design qualities, and the design process. Recipients of this recognition have a video made about the engaging work, are formally recognized by the Board of Trustees at a regular board meeting, and given a framed acknowledgement to commemorate the event. Videos are then posted on the district's You Tube channel.
