South Bosque Elementary school teacher Holly Land was one of several winners of the 2017 Ernest and Sarah Butler Awards for Excellence in Science Teaching.


$2,000 as well as $1,000 for their school. Three teachers who have ^K_QR^ PY\ POaO\ ^RKX `O cOK\] \O- ceive rookie awards of $1,500 each plus $1,000 for their schools. The program is funded by gener- ous donors to the TMA Foundation, the philanthropic arm of TMA, and the TMAF Ernest and Sarah Butler Endowment for Excellence in Sci- ence Teaching Awards. In 2017, the total amount of the prizes increased to $60,500, up from $24,000 in 2016. Ms. Land says that when apply-


ing for grants or awards (she won a $10,000 grant for her school district in 2016), she thinks about how the funds can be used for equipment, such as microscopes and telescopes, that will create stepping stones for her students’ future careers. But the greatest reward, she says, is work- ing with students while they are still young and curious. “When I teach students about cir-


cuits, and they come in to me the next day to show me that, with their par- ent’s permission, they took a fan from a junk computer and created a circuit to get it to work, I am rewarded with the knowledge that I made a differ- ence for at least one student,” she said.

.texmed.org/teachers. Deadlines are Nov. 17 for nominations and Dec. 21 for applications.
