Ignatian Outstanding Student Teacher Award

The Department of Education awards the Ignatian Outstanding Student Teacher Award to those individuals who actively seek to promote Ignatian pedagogy.  These student teachers consistently model the ideals and principles of the Department of Education Conceptual Framework and the Missouri Beginning Teacher Standards.  These student teachers find God in all things, and live the spirit of Saint Ignatius of Loyola through discernment, magis, reflection, and wisdom.
