Tim Smith: 2014 State Teacher of the Year!
TEACHERS OF THE YEAR HONORED
The best teachers not only know content; they have a knack for inspiring students. Henry James was correct when he wrote: "A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops." James' aphorism is particularly apt when it comes to those teachers who are committed to making a difference in the lives of their students.
Sacramento State recently recognized 12 award-winning teaching alumni as representatives of the thousands who were Made at Sac State.
Alumnus Timothy Smith (pictured, second from left) is a case in point. Named one of five California Teachers of the Year, he was selected as the state's representative for the National Teacher of the Year competition.
He teaches ninth- through 12th-grade algebra and advanced placement statistics at Florin High School. He received his bachelor's degree in mathematics and his teaching credential at Sacramento State in 2001, and is taking part in the University's Internet Masters in Educational Technology (iMET) graduate program.
Included in the picture, is our very own Robert Brewer, Physics Teacher and SCOE's Teacher of the Year for 2013. (pictured, seventh from left)
