NACOGDOCHES, Texas — Stephen F. Austin State University senior Brianna Evans of Center received the Olds Family Outstanding Student Teacher Award, which honors an exemplary student teacher from SFA’s Department of Elementary Education each semester.
University field supervisor MaryAnn Bentley nominated Evans for this honor, and a committee of six SFA elementary education faculty members, who reviewed teaching videos and additional materials, selected her to receive the award.
Evans will graduate SFA this month with a bachelor’s degree in interdisciplinary studies. Her specialization is teaching fourth through eighth grade. She completed her student teaching at Center Middle School in the Center Independent School District with eighth-grade teacher Anita Williams serving as her mentor.
