CCPS Teacher Ruth Willis Receives Prestigious National 180 Educator Award

Ruth Will Read 180 Award winner

Prestigious National 180 Educator Award for Unwavering Commitment to Student Literacy Achievement  



In recognition of National Teacher Appreciation Week, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt celebrates Ruth Willis from Altavista Combined School for her efforts to help struggling students succeed

[ALTAVISTA, VA] – May 8, 2018– Global learning company Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) today announced that Ruth Willis, a middle school language arts teacher at Altavista Combined School in Altavista, Va., has been named one of only six recipients of the prestigious 2018 180 Educator Awards. The awards, now in their 12th year, recognize educators across the United States who have helped advance the trajectory of their students’ progress in reading and math, fostering both personal and academic growth. 

Ms. Willis is being recognized for guiding students in her class to great success by setting high expectations for growth in reading. Her students work hard along with her to reach those expectations – and on many occasions, surpass them. In the first year of implementing the intervention program READ 180, 91 percent of Ms. Willis’s students showed gains greater than 100 points in their Lexile™ levels, and that growth continues each year. After spending two years in her READ 180 program, many students have gone on to pass statewide assessments and become confident, fluent readers.

“I challenge my students to set goals, and we celebrate their successes—daily, weekly, every chance we get,” said Ms. Willis.

“Amazing, exciting, engaging, dynamic and driven are the words that come to mind when I think about Ruth Willis,” said Altavista Combined School Assistant Principal Michelle McBride, who nominated Ms. Willis for the award. “Her loving and caring spirit help to nurture struggling readers as they enter her room, and her belief in each of them helps to build their confidence in their own ability to be successful readers.”

Ms. Willis will receive an invitation to attend the 2018 Model Schools Conference in Orlando, Fla., in June 2018, where an award ceremony will be held to recognize her achievements. She will also receive an additional library of HMH titles for her classroom that will be selected specifically for her students’ ages and reading levels. 


What Are the 180 Educator Awards?

·       The 180 Educator Awards is an annual program that honors teachers across the United States who have demonstrated an unwavering commitment to fostering math and literacy growth in their students, resulting in personal and academic growth.

 

The 180 Educator Award winners have inspired struggling students to make great strides in reading and math using READ 180, MATH 180 and System 44, intervention programs that use adaptive technology to personalize instructing and accelerate growth.

How many 2018 180 Educator Award winners are there?

·       There are six winners in 2018, ranging in age, background and geographic location. The six winners share a common mission to ensure that all students, including those who have fallen behind due to personal and academic obstacles, have a chance to succeed in the classroom and beyond no matter the circumstance.

How long have the Awards been in existence?

·       The 180 Educator Awards are in their 12th year. 

How are the 180 Award winners selected?

·       The 180 Educator Award winners are selected by an HMH committee that reviews demonstrated improvement in reading and math based on average Lexile™ or Quantile™ gains in each educator’s classroom. Nomination forms include video submissions, personal statements from the educators and students who have been impacted firsthand, and references from colleagues in the nominated educator’s community.

What do the 180 Educator Award winners win?

·       Winners receive a classroom library of HMH titles, as well as an invitation to attend the 2018 Model Schools Conference in Orlando, Fla., where they will honored in an 180 Awards ceremony.

I Am... Emma Green a 2013 Graduate of Campbell County Public Schools.

Emma Green CCPS Graduate

I graduated from Altavista Combined School and Central Virginia Governors School in 2013.  I attended American University (Washington, DC) where I earned my degree in Public Relations & Strategic Communications with a Minor in Marketing. I  am currently the Public Relations Coordinator at LimeBike, a bike share company based in San Francisco. My goal for the future is to continue playing a role in the progressive sustainability, health, and transportation industries. 
I began to develop my love for communications in my high school journalism class. Through the ACS Nuntius yearbook, I had the opportunity to lead and think creatively as part of a motivated editorial team, and to attend annual conferences at Columbia University in NYC to learn from professionals and to interact with other aspiring journalists across the country.  Most importantly, CVGS prepared me academically for my classes at AU. Because of the research and critical thinking skills, I gained at CVGS, along with the incredible opportunities I had in my classes there, I excelled in my classes in college.  This allowed me to pursue internships that led me to my job today. When I was younger, I thought I wanted a career in medicine; it was at CVGS that I realized I didn't want to pursue science itself, but to tell the story of the work of the scientists around me.  At LimeBike, I get to merge my passions for public relations, technology, sustainability, and health. It's ideal, and I credit my CVGS and ACS teachers who challenged me and cultivated class-wide exploration, innovation, and change.

Tyler Jennings 2015 Graduate of CCPS
I graduated from William Campbell High School in 2015.  When I entered my junior year of high school, I realized that I wanted to start working towards a trade so I enrolled in the electrical program offered at Campbell County Technical Center. After the first semester at the CCTC, I realized I had found my trade. The courses offered there allowed me to get certified in safety training as well as earn my CPR card. During my senior year, I continued in the electrical program at the Campbell County Technical Center. After graduating from William Campbell High School, I had to choose where I was going with what I had learned at the CCTC. In August of 2015, I accepted a job with Moore's Electric and began working toward my apprenticeship as an electrician. While working full-time at Moore’s Electric, I attended night classes at the Virginia Technical Institute in Altavista. Because of the courses I had been able to take while still in high school, I was able to start ahead of my fellow classmates at VTI. I graduated from Virginia Technical Institute with my certification as an electrician in less than 18 months.
The Campbell County Technical Center gave me the best opportunity to find a trade that I would enjoy. By attending classes at the vocational center during my junior and senior years of high school, I was able to gain experiences in the electrical field and get classes under my belt to get a head start on a career. Currently, I am a full-time employee at Moore's Electric.

CCPS Response to National School Walkout

posted Mar 10, 2018, 7:15 AM by Amy Abell   [ updated Mar 10, 2018, 7:15 AM ]

Campbell County Schools respects every individual’s right to free expression and peaceful assembly.  On March 14, 2018, national organizations have advocated for a student walkout at 10:00 a.m.  Campbell County Schools neither encourages nor discourages participation in this event.  Campbell County students, if they choose, may participate in a peaceful manner. 

 

Campbell County Schools’ number one priority will be student safety.  At 10:00 a.m. on March 14, 2018, students wishing to participate will be allowed to assemble for seventeen minutes under the supervision of school staff in a safe location that the administration will announce the morning of the event.  For safety purposes, only students will be allowed to participate in this event.  Students wishing not to participate will remain in class under the supervision of their classroom teacher.  At the conclusion of seventeen minutes, students will be expected to return to class and resume normal school activities.  Throughout the entirety of the event, students are expected to adhere to Campbell County Schools’ Standards of Student Conduct.

I graduated from Rustburg High School and Central Virginia Community College (through Campbell County’s Early College Program) in 2012.  I attended James Madison University, where I received a bachelor’s degree in Writing, Rhetoric and Technical Communications (WRTC) and School of Media Arts and Design (SMAD). My concentration in SMAD was Journalism. I graduated from JMU in December 2015. After graduating from James Madison University in December 2015, I served as an education reporter for Harrisonburg’s newspaper, the Daily News-Record.  Currently, I am an editor and communication specialist for B&W Associates in Woodbridge, Virginia. I began working at B&W Associates about a year ago. As an editor, I am responsible for running What’s Up Prince William, an online news site that covers non-profits, businesses, events and community issues in Prince William County. In addition to writing stories, I film and edit videos and implement Search Engine Optimization (SEO) strategies. Search Engine Optimization focuses on how websites rank on search engines (such as Google and Bing). I am interested in becoming a managing partner for B&W Associates. As the managing partner, I would like to serve as the Director of Marketing and Search Engine Optimization.


Through my classes in the Early College Program and Campbell County Schools, I gained several skills that I use daily. My love for writing, editing, research, and communication was fostered by the English and literature classes I took at Rustburg Middle School, Rustburg High School and in the Early College Program. One of my favorite memories is from English class during my freshman year at Rustburg High School. My teacher, Mrs. Slate, often asked us to analyze and talk about various pieces of literature. Through these class discussions and through my conversations with teachers, I was encouraged to delve deeper into the various subjects we were studying at the time. These experiences have prepared me for my current position, where I often gain new understanding and help create solutions by simply looking beyond the surface.
