WASHINGTON STATE TEACHER RECEIVES TRAFFIC SAFETY EDUCATION AWARD
Yusuf Quidwai, who operates and teaches at the Q Driving School in Omak, Washington, will be one of three people to receive the annual American Driver and Traffic Safety Education Association (ADTSEA), Teacher of Excellence Award at the ADTSEA Conference in Portland, Oregon. He will receive the award at a conference luncheon on July 19th. Winners also include teachers from Illinois and North Dakota. The award is sponsored by the National Road Safety Foundation.
Yusuf is currently the president of the Washington Traffic Safety Education Association (WTSEA). In addition to teaching and managing at his own driving school, he has worked at the state level to help update the curriculum. He has trained instructors and helps to find Traffic Safety Education teachers for several small public schools in order to keep their programs alive. In his words, “His goal and prayer for these young drivers is to keep them accident and ticket free for life.”
ADTSEA is the professional association that represents traffic safety educators throughout the United States. WTSEA is its Washington State affiliate. Both encourage ‘best practices’ in traffic safety education and conduct annual conferences. This year’s WTSEA Conference will be held in Wenatchee, Washington on October 14th and 15th. Interested TSE teachers, administrators and driving school owners may register, now, by going to the WTSEA website at www.wtsea.com.
