Tim Howard “Excellence in Teaching Fund”
The Tim Howard Excellence in Teaching Award, established in honor of our second Head of School, aims to recognize individual educators or teams of teachers at TASIS Dorado. The School underscores the vital importance of molding the next generation and places great emphasis on high-quality teachers and the importance of talent development and subject matter expertise.
Drawing on revenue from this restricted, endowed fund, the award may be designated annually starting in FY2022 for a teacher or team of educators who demonstrate instructional growth, expertise, creativity, and innovation in their classrooms; who make learning engaging, vibrant, and relevant for students; and whose work and accomplishments are a model for other teachers. The award may be distributed in the form of a cash gift, funding for a passion project, professional learning, travel stipends, or continuing education.
The purpose of the award is to elevate the teaching profession; attract, retain, motivate, and inspire great teachers at our School; allow them to share best educational practices with their colleagues, and further enhance the reputation of teachers at TASIS Dorado.
A gift to the Tim Howard "Excellence in Teaching Fund" will directly impact the School’s individual educator or team of educators.
