Saginaw Valley State University’s Anne Tapp Recognized for Her Achievements in Teacher Education

Anne Tapp, a professor of teacher education at Saginaw Valley State University in Michigan, has been selected as the 2023 recipient of the David G. Imig Award for Distinguished Achievement in Teacher Education by the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education.

The David G. Imig Award recognizes distinguished achievement in the formulation, implementation, or analysis of teacher education policy, or the performance of distinguished scholarship in educator preparation. The award is named in honor of AACTE President and CEO Emeritus David G. Imig, who led the association from 1980 to 2005.

“It is a great honor to have been selected for AACTE’s David G. Imig Award for Distinguished Achievement in Teacher Education,” Professor Tapp said. “I have been fortunate to work with amazing colleagues at SVSU, AACTE, and AACTE’s Advisory Council of State Representatives who make a difference in the lives of teacher education and P-12 students.”

Professor Tapp, who joined the faculty in the university’s College of Education in 2002, teaches in both the undergraduate and graduate programs. Her research interests include the integration of technology, STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), and reflective practice. Dr. Tapp currently is on sabbatical from SVSU, working with NASA as a Jet Propulsion Laboratory education executive in residence.

Dr. Tapp holds a Ph.D. in curriculum and instruction from Wayne State University in Detroit.
