Nanette Lehman, 2013 Teacher of the Year, wins another award

Nanette Lehman, who teaches second grade at Haines School and was named Oregon’s 2013 Teacher of the Year, has received another honor that will take her to China this summer.

Lehman has received the  National Education Association Foundation’s Award for Teaching Excellence, the Baker School District announced on its website.

Lehman traveled to Washington, D.C., to receive the award during a gala event Feb. 7.

“These prestigious awards recognize, reward, and promote excellence in teaching and advocacy for the profession, community engagement, attention to diversity, and leadership in professional development,” the district website states.  

The Oregon Education Association selected Lehman as the state’s representative for the award.  She was one of 36 public school educators chosen for the honor. 

Lehman will be among 34 of those who will travel to China in June to participate in the 2014 Global Learning Fellows Program. The group will travel to Beijing and Xian, China, where participants “will learn how to enhance the connections of the cultural and educational worlds.” 

Haines School received a check for $650 from the NEA Foundation. It was recognized as “a school that creates an environment that encourages teamwork and excellence from students and educators alike,” the website states.
