Each year, SST 2 has the honor and privilege of awarding the R.A. Horn Outstanding Student Achievement Award and the Franklin B. Walter Outstanding Educator Award. SST 2 would like to thank the teachers and staff that took the time out of their busy schedules to submit a nomination!
This year's nominees were exceptional and the Selection Committee had the very difficult task of choosing our regional recipients.
Announcing the 2023 Franklin B. Walter Outstanding Educator Award Recipients!
Andrew Hoke, Rebecca Reed, and Nilla of Keystone Elementary School, Keystone Local Schools
Andrew and Rebecca were chosen for their ability to collaborate, meet each student where they are and move them forward. "There is no wrong (in our classroom). When we pair kids up, we talk about everyone having strengths and weaknesses and there's nothing wrong with that. You're just not there yet", said Andrew during an interview. Rebecca added that they expose all students to everything in tier 1 instruction and they keep track of which students need more support. They structure their interventions based on the need for support and all groups are fluid.
SST 2 is proud to be able to recognize them as the Franklin B. Walter Award recipients!
