• McMurtry named NCTE Teacher of Excellence

    Coppell High School teacher Nannette McMurtry was honored as the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) Affiliate High School Teacher of Excellence for the North Texas Area. On June 17th, she was recognized at the 2nd Annual Language & Literary Conference hosted by the North Texas Council of Teachers of English and Languages Arts (NTCTELA). “The way Nannette creates collaborative learning spaces and engages students in their own learning by integrating technology in the classroom is phenomenal. She facilitates the conditions for learning to be both relevant and rigorous,” stated NTCTELA President Jill Haltom.

    Nannette has taught various English courses at CHS for the past seven years. In the 2009-2010 school year, she applied for and was accepted into the Club 21 Technology Integration Grant Team. During this past school year, she was a CHS Teacher of the Year Nominee and received the CISD Superintendent Super Teacher Award. CHS Principal Brad Hunt offered, “Nannette is not only a teacher I have counted on to help achieve our school goals, but someone who takes care of whatever student walks through her classroom doors, loves them, works with them, and provides them with phenomenal teaching. She is a wonderful teacher.”

    In November, Nannette will be attending the NCTE Conference in Chicago where she will be recognized at the Affiliate Luncheon and receive her certificate from NCTE.
