Palmer Trinity School Journalism and History teacher David Cutler has been named one of 25 National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) Teachers of the Future.
This year’s NAIS Teachers of the Future were selected from a large pool of nominees who inspire academic excellence in students and who serve as opinion leaders among their colleagues and peers.
Cutler came to Palmer Trinity in the fall of 2008 after completing his bachelor’s and master’s degrees at Brandeis University in Boston. He continues to bring new ideas into the classroom, teaching students how to create news stories with the most cutting-edge multimedia tools and software.
When Cutler isn’t teaching, he hosts and contributes to SpinEdu, an educational blog that focuses on technological opportunities and challenges in the classroom. Over the past year, Cutler has interviewed and written articles on many of the nation’s top educators and authors including Harvard education professor Tony Wagner, author William Zinsser, and NAIS president Patrick Bassett.
As a NAIS Teacher of the Future, Cutler will spend next school year leading an online discussion forum designed to share innovative ideas and teaching techniques as well as create a short demonstration video to inspire others.
