DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dr. Barry P. Resnick, Dean of William Howard Taft University’s Boyer Graduate School of Education, announced that the recipient of the institution’s Master of Education Scholarship Opportunity is June Gilfillan. Ms. Gilfillan is currently a teacher of students with moderate to severe disabilities in Grass Valley, California. Beginning her career in teaching in 1999, she has taught at every level, from Preschool to High School, and has recently begun mentoring new teachers in her district. Her experience and dedication to the field of education were inspiring and deserving of the award.
Gilfillan impressed the scholarship review committee with her unique teaching styles that reach students with disabilities to help them flourish in and out of the classroom. She has designed and implemented an onsite work program for her students which allow them to work while completing course requirements. She received the approval of her superiors and raised the funds to launch the program for her disabled students, and it has proven to be a success.
In 2009, Ms. Gilfillan began mentoring current and future educators in her area. She shares her enthusiasm for creative approaches and solving difficult behaviors with these new and aspiring teachers as they begin their journey into the classroom. She is a great example of what a teacher should strive to be and William Howard Taft University is honored to have her as a student.
