He taught at Angelo State University for eight years and worked in the admissions department at Rice University in Houston SVHS principal Joe Rogers nominated Hayworth “He’s such an outstanding teacher,” Rogers said “He’s taught on the college level and chose the high school level because it’s more satisfying ” Hayworth said he chose teaching in high schools over colleges because he has “a captive audience ” “Here, you can make (students) learn,” he said. “In college, they can pay their $2 and drop out Some of them take that first test, get scared and run off.” Information from the University of Texas at Austin states that both teachers are well known to students, parents and colleagues as dedicated educators with exceptional leadership and inspirational qualities Both teachers will receive cer-Sally Kingsbury tificates of appreciation from the university in recognition of their contributions to educational excellence In addition, they will be considered in a selection process which will result in between five and 20 teachers being invited to the UT campus for anRonald Hayworth awards ceremony.
