C-FB Teacher Name 2013 Texas History Teacher of the Year!

Steve Sonksen has been named the 2013 Texas History Teacher of the Year by the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, HISTORY®, and Preserve America.

After a lengthy application process, a panel of teachers, administrators, and academics from Texas chose Steve for his use of primary documents in the classroom, the level of inspiration that he provided to his students and his career achievements in education.

As the 2013 Texas History Teacher of the Year, Steve will receive a $1,000 award, a certificate of recognition, an archive of books and historical resources presented in his name to our school library, and an invitation to attend a 2014 Gilder Lehrman Teacher Seminar. Also, he will be recognized at a ceremony. Steve is a finalist for the $10,000 National History Teacher of the Year Award.

In addition, Kent will be named a Gilder Lehrman Affiliate School. Affiliate Schools receive invitations to regional forums with noted historians, access to extensive teacher resources such as lesson plans, toolkits, and primary source documents to use in the classroom, priority access to teacher seminars and traveling exhibitions, discounts to our online store, and free mailings of classroom materials.
