Congratulations to Lindsey Blansit, science teacher at Horizon Middle School, for being one of just 25 teachers from the United States and Canada to receive the Maitland P. Simmons Memorial Award for New Teachers.
The award comes from the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), and is presented to outstanding K-12 teachers in their first five years of teaching. As a recipient, Ms. Blansit will attend this year’s National Conference on Science Education in Chicago — and true to form, she is already thinking about how that experience will help her students.
“I’ll learn things that will help me improve my classroom, and that helps my students,” she says. “It’s such a great opportunity.”
Keep up the good work, Lindsey!
