Thank you for your interest in acting as a Charles Butt Scholarship for Aspiring Teachers interview panelist.
The Charles Butt Scholarship was founded in 2017, as part of the Raise Your Hand Texas Foundation’s Raising Texas Teachers initiative. The goal of Raising Texas Teachers is to elevate the status of teaching and ensure every student has a quality teacher.
The Charles Butt scholars will reflect the kind of teachers, and people, who will advance students’ learning in their classroom and improve the culture and climate of their school. We value principals’ perspectives on the scholarship finalists. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email Christina Dunigan at email@example.com or call us at (512) 610-5396.
Finalists will participate in three activities during the interview day. You may be responsible for observing and evaluating candidates in each activity:
Raise Your Hand will reimburse each interview panelist for their travel to and from the interview site, provide dinner and a hotel room the night before, and meals during the interview day.
