State teacher of the year is UW-Green Bay grad

Congratulations are in order for UW-Green Bay alumna and Institute for Learning Partnership instructor JoAnn Miller. The Oconto Falls High School science teacher has been named Wisconsin’s High School Teacher of the Year. Miller, one of the instructors for the ILP’s National Board Candidate Support program, received news of the accolade during a surprise all-school ceremony Thursday (Sept. 6) at the high school. She will receive $3,000 from the Herb Kohl Educational Foundation and will be recognized in state Superintendent Tony Evers’ State of Education address Sept. 20. Miller received her undergraduate degree in biology from UW-Green Bay before earning her master’s in education from Viterbo.
