Alumna Miller is Wisconsin’s nominee for National Teacher of the Year
We’ve got more great news to report on alumna JoAnn Miller, the Oconto Falls science teacher who in September was chosen as state High School Teacher of the Year. Earlier this week, the state Department of Public Instruction announced that Miller, also an Institute for Learning Partnership instructor, will be Wisconsin’s representative to the National Teacher of the Year Program. The honor carries a $6,000 prize from the Herb Kohl Educational Foundation. “JoAnn is an educator who leads by example,” said State Superintendent Tony Evers. “… Her passion for helping young people learn is equaled by her commitment to being an influence on teacher quality. It is an honor to nominate her to be Wisconsin’s representative to the National Teacher of the Year Competition.” For more information, visit http://dpi.state.wi.us/.
