Deer Park Teacher Honored with the Celebrate Teaching Distinguished Educator Award
Tim Hubbard recognized by Battelle for Kids
Battelle for Kids recently recognized Tim Hubbard, a teacher from Deer Park Jr./Sr. High School, as a distinguished educator for his tremendous impact on his students, colleagues, and community. Hubbard was among 44 teachers from across Ohio to receive the 2016 Celebrate Teaching Distinguished Educator Award as a representative of excellence in the teaching profession. The awards were presented during a program at the Educators Connect for Success Conference in Columbus on June 14.
“Mostly, I am thankful that anyone (Dr. Orso) thought of me in the first place. I teach in a building full of hardworking, passionate educators, and being surrounded by great teachers and thoughtful students is a constant reminder that everyday counts. It is important to be in each day, be in each moment,” said Tim Hubbard.
Celebrate Teaching is Battelle for Kids’ commitment to celebrate, support, and inspire great teaching. Since 2012, the organization has recognized nearly 250 outstanding teachers with the Distinguished Educator Award who have shown powerful results in the classroom. The 2016 class of Distinguished Educators were selected for demonstrating evidence of great teaching in multiple ways—including academic, non-cognitive, and community measures.
“The impact of a teacher starts with a student and reverberates through the classroom, the school, and the community. It is truly the gift that keeps on giving,” said Jim Mahoney, executive director of Battelle for Kids. “Congratulations to all the outstanding teachers in the 2016 class of Distinguished Educators, and thank you to the thousands of educators across Ohio who give so selflessly of themselves to teach our children.”
“To best describe Tim Hubbard, he is the ‘full package.’ Mr. Hubbard reaches all of his students on a personal level, encourages each and every student to reach their fullest potential, takes on numerous leadership responsibilities within the building, promotes a positive culture within the school, and is passionate about his content and the courses he teaches. The students and parents are fortunate to have him working with our students,” said Dr. Stace Orso, principal at Deer Park Jr./Sr. High School.
