The AACTE Committee on Professional Preparation and Accountability looks forward to receiving your nominations for the following three awards:

  • The Margaret B. Lindsey Award for Distinguished Research in Teacher Education recognizes distinguished achievement in research, by an individual or team of individuals, over the last decade that has had a major impact on the field of educator preparation. Lindsey was a longtime professor at Teachers College, Columbia University, whose own writing and research had a tremendous and lasting impact on the field. Recent recipients include James Hiebert of the University of Delaware, Jeanne Wilcox of Arizona State University, and Guofang Wan of Ohio University.
  • The David G. Imig Award for Distinguished Achievement in Teacher Education recognizes an individual for distinguished achievement in the field of policy and/or research related to policy in educator preparation. The career achievement acknowledged by this award must take place in the formulation, implementation, research, or analysis of educator preparation policy. The award is named for AACTE President/CEO Emeritus David G. Imig, who led the Association from 1980 to 2005. Recent recipients include Jolanda M. Westerhof, of Principia College, Nancy Zimpher of the State University of New York System Administration, Mary Brownell and Paul Sindelar of the University of Florida, and Gary Galluzzo of George Mason University.
  • The Edward C. Pomeroy Award for Outstanding Contributions to Teacher Education recognizes outstanding contributions to educator preparation, either through distinguished service to the educator preparation community or through the development and promotion of outstanding practices in educator preparation at the collegiate, state, or national level. It is named for Edward C. Pomeroy, who was AACTE’s executive director from 1952 to 1980. Recent recipients include Stacy Duffield of North Dakota State University, Renée A. Middleton of Ohio University, Ena Shelley of Butler University, and Pam Grossman of the University of Pennsylvania.
