Another award to an M-P teacher
Battelle for Kids recently recognized second-grade teacher Carmelina Larke as a distinguished educator for her tremendous impact on her students, colleagues and community. Carmelina was among 33 teachers from across Ohio to receive the 2017 Celebrate Teaching Distinguished Educator Award as a representative of excellence in the teaching profession. The awards were presented during a program at the Educators Connect for Success Conference in Columbus on June 8.

  • MPHS Science teacher Scott Spohler was the recipient of the Be E3 Smart Outstanding Energy Efficiency Educator award by Dayton Power and Light;
    English teacher Steve Jackson (who retired this year after 45 years in the district) was voted the Best Teacher in Madison County by readers of the Madison Press; and 
    Sixth-grade Morgan Gaus was chosen as the May Teacher of the Month by Sunny 95.
Celebrate Teaching is Battelle for Kids’ commitment to celebrate, support, and inspire great teaching. Since 2012, the organization has recognized nearly 300 outstanding teachers with the Distinguished Educator Award who have shown powerful results in the classroom. The 2017 Class of Distinguished Educators were selected for demonstrating evidence of great teaching in multiple ways—including academic, non-cognitive, and community measures.

“This recognition is a reminder to all that teachers impact students in so many ways by helping them to grow academically, socially, and emotionally,” said Dr. Karen K. Garza, President and CEO of Battelle for Kids. “Congratulations to all the outstanding teachers in the 2017 Class of Distinguished Educators, and thank you for your work as a representative of the thousands of teachers across Ohio who give so selflessly of themselves to teach our children.”
