The CAMWS Subcommittee on Teaching Awards is pleased to award the Kraft Award for Excellence in Secondary Teaching to Mr. Brian Tibbets of Monmouth-Roseville High School.  Magister Tibbets has rejuvenated this Latin program by increasing enrollment and becoming involved with Illinois Junior Classical League.  He brings students to the state convention and has led trips to Italy so that his students can experience the classical world.  His focus remains on both the students in his classroom and the material.  One student wrote, “I have never met another teaching or professor who is as dedicated, professional or influential as he is on a daily basis.”  Magister Tibbets’ dedication has saved his Latin program from extinction and inspired countless students.  He regularly goes out of his way for his students.  We are pleased to award the Kraft Award for Excellence in Secondary Teaching to Brian Tibbets.
