DHHS Teacher Receives University of Chicago Outstanding Educator Award

Joshua Hibbard Receives University of Chicago Outstanding Educator Award

Daniel Hand High School (DHHS) is proud to announce World Language teacher Joshua Hibbard is the recipient of this year’s University of Chicago Outstanding Educator Award. Mr. Hibbard has been a Spanish teacher at DHHS since 2008.  

An Outstanding Educator shapes young minds in meaningful ways—thoughtfully approaching instruction, sharing an infectious love for learning, and caring for students both inside and outside of the classroom. Each year, newly admitted UChicago students have the opportunity to reflect on their time in school and nominate an educator who played a significant role in their education, made a positive impact in their lives, and whose influence has brought them to where they are today.

The University of Chicago is honored to recognize excellence in teaching and sincerely congratulates this year’s Outstanding Educator Award winners, who are exceptional in their field and role models for all students. The University deeply appreciates the lively minds who thirst for knowledge that these educators have nurtured and inspired. We thank them for going above and beyond the call of duty every day and leaving an impression that will be carried over a lifetime.

All award winners receive a commemorative award, certificate, and letter that includes details from the student they were nominated by.
