Columbus Academy Mark Daubenmier named “Teacher of the Future”
Columbus Academy Upper School math and computer science teacher Mark Daubenmier has been selected by the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) for the 2011-12 Teachers of the Future program. The NAIS Teachers of the Future were selected from a large pool of nominees who inspire academic excellence in students and who serve as opinion leaders among their colleagues and peers.
The Teachers of the Future were also chosen for their expertise in particular areas — environmentalism, globalism, technology, and equity and justice — which NAIS believes are hallmarks of a high-quality education for the 21st century. As one of only 25 teachers nationwide chosen for the program, Mark will lead an online discussion forum designed to share innovative ideas and teaching techniques and he will create a demonstration video to inspire others.
