Nanette Lehman’s life has been changed in ways she never expected over the past year and a half.

Lehman, 46, traveled across the country during 2013 as the Oregon Teacher of the Year and this summer, though her reign as the state’s top teacher ended in January, Lehman traveled around the globe en route to a 10-day visit to China as part of the honor.

The adventure began in November 2012 when the Haines second-grade teacher was named the Oregon Teacher of the Year. Her term officially began in January 2013.

Along the way, Lehman got to know other teachers who were selected for the honor from their states. She was asked to speak to other teachers and in other school districts, her counsel was sought on matters of school reform and she even attended Space Camp in Alabama with her fellow award-winning teachers.

In April 2013, the teachers traveled to Washington, D.C., where they were recognized for their expertise in a ceremony at the White House where they met personally with President Barack Obama.

Lehman was one of eight Teachers of the Year who were among 34 educators chosen to participate in the 2014 NEA Foundation Global Learning Fellowship, which culminated with the trip to China this summer.

The fellowship recipients were recognized in Washington, D.C., on Feb. 7 during the annual NEA Foundation Salute to Excellence in Education Gala.
