Top LRSD Teachers from Six LRSD Schools Attend Prestigious Teachers Academy

Teachers from Baseline Academy, Forest Heights STEM Academy (FHSA), Forest Park, Fulbright, Otter Creek and Rockefeller elementary schools recently attended the 2015 Mickelson ExxonMobil Teachers Academy in Pittsburgh, PA for a rigorous week of professional learning in science and mathematics. These teachers were among 140 teachers selected nationwide to attend one of three summer academies. Significantly, LRSD's own Gene Williams, FHSA, is considered an expert in the field and served as an instructor during one week of the academy. Participating in this academy is an honor and it enhances our teachers STEM knowledge to bring back to their buildings and classrooms. Teachers also received memberships to the National Science Teacher Association (NSTA) Learning Center as well as a membership to NCTM (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics).

Plus, Otter Creek Principal Donna Hall won a scholarship for an additional 20 memberships to the NSTA Learning Center for her staff at Otter Creek.
