Voting for the Excellence in Teaching award is underway and continues until Oct. 29.

There are three ways a student can vote: in person, online and with the Phi Theta Kappa advisers.

Students can vote in person at voting tables, located on both the Kilgore College campus and KC-Longview campus.

In Kilgore, the voting tables are located in the Devall Student Center and in front of the library; in Longview, tables are set up in either North or Main building, depending on the week.

For students to vote online they should visit www.kilgore.edu/excellenceinteaching.asp

The PTK advisers are Michele Daniels in CA 108 and Paul Buchanan in ES 339/341.

To be able to vote, students must have the first and last name of the teacher they wish to vote for, and use their name, student ID and reason they are voting for this instructor.

“This is an opportunity for students to celebrate an instructor who has inspired them though their hard work and dedication they have put in,” Daniels said

Teachers who have won in the last three years are not eligible to be nominated.

Past winners who are still active teachers and thus not eligible are:

2010: Bettye Craddock, Mary Weierich, Bennie Brown, Mary Kates, and Lucy Carroll.

2011: Shelly Wayne, Latasha Goodwyn, and Tina Rushing.

2012: Britt Davis, Karen Johnson, James “Jim” Taylor, Donnie Seals, David Stroud, and Jesse James.
