ACTE Announces Nebraska Assistant Professor of Practice as National Award Finalist

ALEXANDRIA, VA—Today, the Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE) announced Sheree Moser, Assistant Professor of Practice of University of Nebraska-Lincoln in Lincoln, Nebraska, as the 2017 ACTE Region V Postsecondary Teacher of the Year. This award recognizes the finest career and technical teachers at the postsecondary level who have demonstrated innovation in the classroom, commitment to their students and dedication to the improvement of CTE in their institutions and communities. 

Sheree Moser is an Assistant Professor of Practice at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL), where she brings over 30 years of education and curriculum development experience to her Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) education classes within the department of Child, Youth, and Family Studies. She teaches 5-6 sections of FCS education courses each semester, as well as online courses for distance learners within the Great Plains IDEA FCS education Master’s degree program. Enrollment within all of these programs has increased from 14 students in 2011 to over 50 this past year.  Professor Moser believes strongly in the power of education to not only better individuals but heal at-risk communities and families. “Professor Moser inspires us to understand ourselves and why what we teach is so valuable to pass on,” says Joan Hines, a former student. “By being leaders who help solve more complicated life problems for our community and the larger society, we can then help others more effectively.”

Over the years, Moser has presented at multiple state and national conferences; been published regularly in state-wide newsletters; served on countless advisory boards; and has held leadership positions in state professional organizations, including serving as the Nebraska Association of FCS President. One of her greatest responsibilities currently is the recruitment of new teachers to fill the shortage of FCS instructors within Nebraska. In addition to collecting and analyzing data on the retirement and open position rates for FCS teachers statewide, Moser has developed recruitment tools for guidance professionals and models a culture of support by continuing to mentor former students years after they have left her classroom. In 2014 she established the “Retired Teachers Network” within the state of Nebraska, which contributed thousands of dollars to support the recruitment of future teachers for the Future FACS Teacher Dinner during the 2015 and 2016 FCCLA State Leadership Conferences to recruit high school students to post-secondary FCS education programs.

Moser is one of five finalists for the 2018 national title. The national winner will be announced at the ACTE Awards Banquet, a dinner and award presentation recognizing the best CTE educators in the country. The event will take place on Wednesday evening, December 6, during ACTE’s CareerTech VISION 2017 in Nashville, Tennessee. The Awards Banquet is sponsored by Express Employment Professionals, the US Army, CareerSafe, Stratasys, and International Baccalaureate.
