Rock Receives Teaching Excellence Award

Reading and elementary education professor Tracy Rock is a recipient of the 2015 UNC Board of Governors Excellence in Teaching Award.

This annual honor recognizes one professor at each of North Carolina’s public institutions. The 17 recipients were nominated by individual campus committees and selected by the Board of Governors’ Committee on Personnel and Tenure. Each award winner will receive a commemorative bronze medallion and a $12,500 cash prize; the honor will be presented formally during the spring graduation ceremony on each campus.

"Encouraging and supporting their development as effective practitioners has the potential to have far-reaching impact for years to come," Rock said. "The full realization of the responsibility and important purpose of teacher education makes what I do not only special but also very fulfilling."
