Today, I had the privilege of traveling to California Area High School in Coal Center, PA to present Hannah Min and her teacher and Discovery Educator, Arlene Amati, with the top award (Grades 9-12 category) in the first ever Discovery Educator Network National Poster Contest.
I was so impressed by the level of support shown to Hannah and Arlene. I made the presentation to Hannah at a whole-school assembly that included 300+ of Hannah’s classmates, her parents, the superintendent, the principal, Intermediate Unit One administrators (IU1 has spearheaded the effort to bring unitedstreaming to the schools within its service area), teachers, friends and media. It was an awesome experience for me, and I hope it was the same for Hannah and Arlene. Hannah’s classmates were so excited for her and let her know with several really loud rounds of applause.
What a fun time! Congratulations, Hannah! Thousands of classrooms across the country are proudly displaying your design.
