Spring Branch ISD 5th Grade Educator was awarded the 2018 Kinder Excellence in Teaching Award
Jared Braun, a six-year district educator, learned of his special award while seated in Don Coleman Coliseum with campus colleagues during the Aug. 10 Convocation for all SBISD employees.
Since 2001, The Kinder Excellence in Teaching Award has been issued to approximately 200 teachers. The recognition is based on nominations. It highlights outstanding teachers with ties to the KIPP Texas Public Schools-Houston, YES Prep Public Schools, Teach for America-Houston and The Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston networks serving schools and students in largely under-resourced communities.
The annual Kinder Excellence in Teaching Awards recognize innovative and results-oriented teaching and raise public awareness of the importance of effective and committed teachers. The awards are made possible by philanthropists Nancy and Rich Kinder through the Kinder Foundation.
