Celebrating Educator Excellence

180 Educator Awards

Albert Einstein once said, “It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.”

In conjunction with National Teacher Appreciation Week, HMH is celebrating six educators who have awakened a joy for learning and knowledge in their students by establishing open and supportive learning environments, maintaining high expectations, and committing to improving the lives of struggling learners.

Craig Topolski, Olga Pacot, Trenquilla Francis, Julie Gallegos, Cynthia Berg and Eric St. Clair are the six recipients of the 2016 180 Educator Awards, which recognize teachers who have helped students overcome personal and academic obstacles to achieve reading and math literacy. The awards, now in their tenth year, honor educators who have fast-tracked the progress of students enrolled in reading and math intervention programs READ 180, MATH 180 and System 44.

Congratulations to the 180 Educator Award Winners and thank you, teachers, for having such a positive impact on the trajectory of our students’ lives.
