Johnson's Viccellio recipient of humanities award
Take a look at Johnson High School's Adrian Viccellio's district teacher website and it's easy to tell that he has a passion for culture and world history. Photos of Viccellio standing by the Great Wall of China and in front of the London Bridge give it away. This passion, along with his involvement with Humanities Texas, has made him the recipient of the 2013 James F. Veninga Outstanding Teaching of the Humanities Award.
During the 2013-2014 school year, Viccellio will receive a check for $5,000 in recognition of his achievements. Additionally, Johnson will receive $500 to purchase humanities instructional materials or improve humanities courses and programs.
The award is presented annually to one exemplary humanities teacher in a Texas elementary, middle, or high school. Amongst 300 nominations, Viccellio was one of three selected to receive the award.
