Heather Anderson won the 2016 Oregon Teacher of the Year. There were no magic shortcuts to her success, just a lot of late nights, studying, and great role models who guided her along the way.
As Anderson says, “Be positive, work hard and you can make a difference in your classroom and community.” As an Oregon State graduate, she is now a Reading and Math Intervention teacher at Juniper Elementary in Bend, Oregon and working toward her Ph.D. in the hopes of guiding future educators toward their own teacher of the year awards.
On April 30th, Oregon State University is hosting Dam Proud Day, our first annual day of giving. The College of Education is taking the opportunity to support our aspiring teachers. One major barrier for our teacher candidate students is the exorbitant cost of fingerprinting, state-mandated test expenses, and licensure fees, all required to enter into the profession. These costs disproportionately affect our non-traditional and disadvantaged students. We can break down this financial barrier by reducing costs that impede students from entering into the teaching profession. Your help will ensure the success of our most critical mission: the training of a diverse and talented cohort of future educators.
