Congratulations to high school language arts teachers Lisa Crawford and Janet Duckham on being recognized with the University of Chicago’s Outstanding Educator Award!
The University of Chicago shared this message with the Ladue School District:
This distinguished award has existed for more than three decades. Each year, the university invites first-year students to nominate an educator who has influenced them, challenged them, or helped them along the path toward intellectual growth. Hundreds of students nominate past teachers who taught them to re-imagine texts, to delve deeper into problem-solving, and to think beyond the borders of the classroom in the pursuit of their own education.
“As an institution that prides itself on being committed to the Life of the Mind, we at the University of Chicago are heartened to see that your schools foster and support such outstanding individuals. Our sincerest congratulations to both of you and your faculty for the continued support of excellence,” said James Nondorf, vice president of enrollment at the University of Chicago.
