Past METC Spotlight Educators

The Midwest Education Technology Community created the Spotlight Educator recognition in 2012 to honor teachers and leaders from the region whose practices make a difference for their students, staff, district, and community. Awardees are educators who are talking the talk and walking the walk, and not necessarily recognized as Rock Stars or presenting at conferences in their off-season. We wanted to honor those who are doing great jobs in their roles and encourage them to share their skills and expertise with others.
METC Spotlight Educators must be certified educators in Missouri or it's surrounding states who demonstrate motivation, engagement, transformation, and connection through using technology. The honorees use their skills and expertise to improve teaching and learning beyond their classrooms. To be considered to be a spotlight educator, one must apply or be nominated by their peers. A METC sub-committee of volunteers, past METC Spotlights, and EducationPlus staff make the final choice for awardees. Those chosen as METC Spotlight Educators are eligible for the honor again, five years after they have received it. Here are our past spotlights:
