                   Kristina Moore has not been teaching at Clarion-Goldfield-Dows for very long, but she refuses to get a slow start at this task. In fact, what she has accomplished halfway into her third year teaching at the school would remind you of the résumé of a veteran teacher. And this past October, the professional organization, the Iowa Council of Teachers of English (ICTE), recognized Moore for her efforts by awarding her with the Barb Schubert Award at their fall conference.

                  This is one of a few prestigious awards that ICTE confers on English teachers yearly. The organization’s website explains about the Barb Schubert Award, “This award for a beginning teacher recognizes individuals who demonstrate exceptional literacy interactions with students and families, utilizes a carefully-planned, rich curriculum, encourages and participates in professional collaboration, and implements innovative pedagogy.” President of ICTE Erin Miller adds that the award is for a teacher who has been teaching less than five years and has been nominated by his or her peers.
