One of our alumni was recently listed in USA TODAY among the AP (Advanced Placement Program) Teachers of the Year!
Amy-Karen Dougan, who received a master’s degree in education from WIU in 1972, has been selected as AP Teacher of the Year for the State of Rhode Island by the Siemens Foundation. According to the Siemens Foundation, the organization provides more than $7 million annually in support of educational initiatives in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in the U.S.
Top Teachers of Top Students
According to the Siemens Foundation, one exceptional teacher per state is selected for this recognition each year to receive a $1,000 grant to his or her high school to support science and mathematics education.
Teachers with a minimum of five years of teaching experience in math, science or technology AP courses are selected for their exemplary teaching and enthusiastic dedication to students and the AP Program.
Sounds like the best kind of math teacher a high school kid could have. Congrats to Amy-Karen, and keep up the “advanced” work!
