Colleen Haag Named Canvas Educator of the Year

colleen haag Congratulations to Unami Middle School Teacher Colleen Haag, who was named among the Canvas Educator of the Year award winners!

The 2020 Canvas Educator of the Year Awards, presented by Instructure, recognize outstanding educators in the United States working to embrace remote learning, prepare students for the workforce, and support student success and achievement in an evolving education landscape.

“Each winner is dedicated to providing students with engaging learning experiences wherever and however they are learning this year,” said Melissa Loble, Chief Customer Experience Officer at Instructure. “I admire their grit and determination as they navigate the ongoing changes in education and strive to strengthen their communities along the way."

Ms. Haag consistently leverages the power of technology to enhance student learning, not only impacting the learners in her own classes but the learners across hundreds of classrooms in her work as a Building Coach as well. She works closely with special education teachers to adapt learning activities and adjust outcomes to provide personalized learning experiences and support student achievement at every level. In addition to her instructional design expertise, she instills a sense of curiosity in her students through hands-on science experiments and innovative design projects. With an end goal of mastery rather than a grade, she provides students with as many attempts as they need to demonstrate their learning. Her passion to improve and openness to model, train, and support her colleagues, students, and their parents is what truly sets her apart.
