LEE COUNTY, Fla. - Lee County Public Schools announced Tuesday that 2 teachers have been honored with the 2010 Excel Award.
This award is presented by The Foundation for Excellence in Education. The following teachers’ students made the greatest annual growth or learning gains for three consecutive years, which earned them this honor:
• Hana Ahmad at Orangewood Elementary School in Reading for Students with Disabilities;
• Andrea Garber at Tropic Isles Elementary School in Reading for Students in Families with Low Incomes.
The Excel Award is part of a broader initiative, Excellence in Teaching, launched by the Foundation for Excellence in Education to identify and share the secrets of successful teaching with educators and policymakers around the nation. This year, the program is awarding cash and prizes to 76 exceptional Florida educators whose students learned at least one-and-a-half times the average student in their grade and achievement level in reading or math.
