Teacher of the Year Nomination- Dawn Boyden
Dawn Boyden– Washington State Nominee Teacher of the Year Award AAFCS. Although Dawn was not chosen as a finalist for the award she states that she learned much from the process. We applaud her efforts and assistance from members of our Executive Board.
In Dawn’s words…..I am especially grateful to LynDee Lombardo and Margaret Viebrock. Each of them spent many hours reviewing the application and my resume to better meet the requirements of the award. Although my application was not selected, this process has been especially helpful in reviewing the current course frameworks to make all learning experiences and student evaluations reflect the national FCS Standards and to meet student needs now and for the future. In addition, the application process encourages certification through AAFCS. As a result, I am now a certified nutrition and wellness educator. I also plan to start the process for National Board certification in the Fall. Her culinary students at work-
