Teacher of the Month

Teacher, Emily Shaub was awarded the April 2020 Teacher of the Month award from the Alliance Area Chamber of Commerce.

 

“Teaching provides an opportunity for me to guide students as independent learners and foster positive relationships. Once these relationships are formed, I am there to help students foster a curiosity about the sciences.
