W&L’s Haley Sigler Receives Inspirational Educator Award Sigler was nominated her for the award by a current student.
Haley Sigler, director of the Teacher Education Program and associate professor of education at Washington and Lee University, received an Inspirational Educator Award at the joint meeting of the Virginia Teacher Educators and Virginia Colleges of Teacher Education at the University of Richmond in March. Sigler’s student Layne Setash ’19 nominated her for the award. Setash also received a Distinguished Teacher Award at the conference.
“It means a great deal to be recognized for contributions to the education and preparation of future teachers,” said Sigler. “This award acknowledges the meaningful relationships we are able to create with our students at Washington and Lee and the quality of our small-teacher preparation program. It’s such a pleasure to follow our graduates as they begin careers teaching in K-12 schools around the nation and abroad and observe the great work they are doing to impact their own students.”
Sigler earned her bachelor’s degree in elementary education from the University of Kentucky in 2001, her M.A.T. at Hollins University in 2005 and her doctorate in education, curriculum and instruction from the University of Virginia in 2008.
