Karen Shinn Award
In 2009 the Executive Board of the SEVA NBCT Regional Network
created an award to honor individuals who have promoted and supported the National Board process through work with National
Board Certified Teachers and National Board candidates in Region 2. This person need not be an NBCT or
from Region 2. Nominations are taken prior to the annual meeting and dinner and a committee selects the
awardee from the nominees received.
The Karen Shinn Award was first presented in November of 2009 to Karen
Shinn. It was through her tireless efforts that this network of National Board Certified Teachers was created in 2002.
The recipients are:
2009 Karen Shinn
2011 Nancy Winter-Traynor
2012 Amy Brown
2014 Joan Davis
2017 Sarah Payne
