Leavenworth Unified School District 453

Nicholson and Reed Honored at KSDE Teacher of the Year Event

We are proud to announce that this year Mrs. Patty Nicholson was honored as a KSDE Region 2 Teacher of the Year semifinalist!

Each panel selects six semifinalists — three elementary teachers and three secondary teachers. From those semifinalists, the panel in each of four regions (based on congressional districts) then selects one elementary finalist and one secondary finalist. The Kansas Teacher of the Year is selected from among the state’s eight regional finalists. Each semifinalist received a red marble apple with a wooden base from The Master Teacher in Manhattan.

Both Mrs. Reed and Mrs. Nicholson will now have the opportunity to meet with other district finalists during a series of school visits throughout the 2016-17 school year. The mission of the Kansas Teacher of the Year program is to build and utilize a network of exemplary teachers who are leaders in the improvement of schools, student performance and the teaching profession. Congratulations to both of our district finalists for their positive representation of the Leavenworth School District.
