“We’re extremely fortunate to have a school community that places a high value on professional development, especially as it pertains to international experiences,” said Director Jeff McGee. “Jeff Hall is a fantastic representative of our staff and a worthy recipient of this award.”
Coach Hall will use his Taylor Teaching Award this summer to travel to Istanbul, Berlin, and Venice, where he will explore the political role of art in the past and present. At the beginning of the next school year, Coach Hall will present to his MLWGS colleagues on the educational experience and how it will be integrated into his classroom.
The Taylor Teaching Award is presented by the Governor’s School Foundation, whose mission is to seek “charitable contributions to enhance the educational experience of the school’s exceptional students.”
The award is named after Patricia E. Taylor, one of the founding teachers at the school and a former curriculum coordinator and math department chair.
