Longtime Lindale educator Janice Caldwell has been named Secondary Teacher of the Year by Region 7 Education Service Center.

Caldwell will represent Region 7 as one of two nominees for the 2010 Texas Education Agency (TEA) Teacher of the Year. Region 7 includes most of the school districts in East Texas.

Caldwell was nominated by Lindale ISD for her concern for students and her capability to inspire them. She was also recognized for her ability and willingness to work cooperatively with colleagues, drive to initiate activities that improve instruction for students, desire to stay informed about current educational theories and practices, and her ability and willingness to make meaningful contributions to education.

Caldwell has 30 years of teaching experience and has spent the last 18 years with Lindale ISD. She currently teaches Speech and Debate at Lindale High School. The Eagle Speech and Debate team won the state championship in May at the UIL Academic Meet. Led by Caldwell, the Eagles won the state crown in 2004, 2005, and 2006. Caldwell has been nationally recognized by the National Forensic League for her strength as a speech and debate teacher.

Caldwell also teaches business and professional speech dual credit courses at Tyler Junior College.

Caldwell has been selected as Teacher of the Year at New Diana High School, Terrell ISD, and Lindale ISD. She was the Kinzie Educator of the Year and the National Speech/Debate/Drama Teacher of the Year NFHS in 2003. Caldwell has published articles in Rostrum, Forensic Educator and UIL Leaguer and received the UIL Denius Excellence Sponsor Award in 2004

On August 21st, Caldwell will compete against 39 other Regional Teachers of the Year, which are reviewed by a panel of judges where six finalists are selected. The six finalists are invited to Austin for personal interviews, before the Elementary Teacher of the Year and the Secondary Teacher of the Year are chosen.

    The John Tyler Lions always seem to look sharp in their uniforms. But thanks to East Texas lawyer Keith Miller, the Lions will look better and play safer. Helmets that advertise lowering the impact of hits, and possibly reduce the amount of concussions, come with a hefty price-tag. Miller's donation of 7,500 dollars, will go to help the lions cover that cost. "Keith Miller's been a big sponsor of John Tyler High School football program for years now.  I know it's...More >>
