Mobile County Public Schools is pleased to announce that Dawes Intermediate teacher Nicole Spottswood has received one of the state’s highest technology awards.
Spottswood is the elementary school winner of the Chiquita Marbury Technology Innovation Award, given by the Alabama Department of Education and Educational Technology section. She will be recognized by the state superintendent on June 12 at the Alabama Educational Technology Conference.
“I am inspired by Mrs. Spottswood’s innovative use of technology promoting student engagement and academic growth for our students,” said Dawes Principal Michele McClung.
The focus of the Chiquita Marbury Technology Innovation Award is to spotlight K-12 educators, administrators and support personnel. It is named for Chiquita Marbury, a technology innovator who contributed invaluable years of service in Alabama schools, and it recognizes educators who are exemplary models of technology teachers and leaders.
Each year one award is presented in each of these categories: Elementary teacher, middle school teacher, high school teacher, school administrator, district technology coordinator and superintendent/central office staff.
Nominees are judged based on five criteria:
- Innovation and creativity
- Impact on teaching and learning
