An AP English teacher and science instructor were named Teachers of the Year for Lincoln-Way East and North high schools, respectively.
Each year, teachers from each school nominate colleagues for the distinction, and administrators make the final decision. Here's a look at the winners and a brief reason why they were chosen:
- Maria Wilson, a science teacher at L-W North, recently earned National Board Certification and launched Future Phoenix Science Family Night, an outreach program to excite grade school children about science.
- East AP English teacher Rich Kolimas made revisions and improvements in the department's curriculum and helped developed the school's Writing Center.
