University of Dayton’s new award recognizes outstanding Ohio Catholic school teacher
The University of Dayton’s Center for Catholic Education launches a new award, Lumen Fidei (Light of Faith), to recognize an outstanding Ohio Catholic school teacher.
“We well-know the vital importance that Catholic teachers serve in our statewide mission and want to thank them for their unwavering devotion to continued access to high quality Catholic education across our state,” said Ali Carr-Chellman, dean of the School of Education and Health Sciences.
Lumen Fidei, the first state-level award for Ohio Catholic school teachers, includes a $1,000 award. It recognizes a full-time licensed teacher who has served at least five years in an Ohio Catholic school, with innovative teaching practices, enthusiasm for their subject matter, and evidence they work to create a classroom environment where Catholic Social Teaching is practiced and lived, especially in regard to equity and inclusion.
