2017 Alliance Teacher of the Year Awards

Great teachers change us, make us believe in ourselves and brighten our outlook on the world and our future in it. As we celebrate the incredible contributions of all teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week, Alliance Teacher of the Year awards give special recognition to teachers who are nominated by their school communities for their dedication inside and beyond the classroom, and their exceptional ability to engage students and activate their excitement for education.

Congratulations to our Alliance Teacher of the Year and our finalists!

 
 

Alex Madueña - World History Teacher

Kate McCabe-LeFever - Italian Teacher

Alliance Alice M. Baxter College-Ready High School

Ms. McCabe-LeFever teaches Italian at Baxter High School and is the world language department lead. She organized a student trip to Italy this past winter to immerse students in Italian culture and language and to show them that they are citizens of a larger world.
