The Henry Ford’s Innovation Nation Teacher Innovator Awards (TIA), presented by Raytheon Technologies, recognizes teachers who demonstrate our Model i Habits of an Innovator through their educational practices. The COVID-19 pandemic presented parents, students and educators with countless challenges that impacted their learning and teaching experiences. Join us this summer as we host a series of THF Conversations that feature our 2021 TIA winners to discuss the practices and tools they’ve adopted this past year, and their plans of implementing them in future student engagements.
