2011 Educator of the Year - J. B. Carmicle
J.B. Carmicle, an English Teacher from Hollywood High School, Los Angeles, California, is the recipient of the inaugural Claes Nobel Educator of the Year Award sponsored by NSHSS. Carmicle was honored recently at The Carter Center in recognition of excellence in teaching and the teaching profession. Carmicle is a role model for his fellow educators and an inspiration to his profession.
“I see how NSHSS contributes to the academic achievements of our students because your organization supports, reinforces and recognizes the success and achievements of scholars worldwide,” Carmicle remarked. “These students during their lives are dedicated to the acquisition of knowledge; that knowledge permits them to make their own contributions to innovative research methodologies, to improve communication technology and efficiency, and to ascertain the further demands of succeeding in our global society. They can then plan the steps forward to make certain they meet those challenging demands.”
As part of this prestigious award, Carmicle was presented with a $5,000 check that he hopes to use to help his students by buying new books and additional technology for the classroom.
“I feel honored to be recognized for such a distinguished award from an organization that I value so highly for its commitment and dedication to celebrating the academic achievements and successes of high school scholars,” he said. “I share this award with other teachers of distinction who strive daily to make a difference in the lives of those we teach, inspire, and motivate to become the very best scholars and lifelong learners they can be.”
NSHSS will be announcing more details about the 2012 Claes Nobel Educator of the Year Award in the months to come.
