Here's what our Educators say about NSHSS...

Being named the Educator Coach of the year for 2020 by the National Society for High School Scholars has reaffirmed my hard work and dedication to students over the past 35 years of my teaching career. Receiving the $5,000 grant in the midst of the COVID–19 Pandemic has definitely been a blessing since it arrived at a time when it was desperately needed. I am thankful and humbled to have received such an outstanding honor from such a prestigious organization.

The support and tangible resources I've received will continue to advance my efforts towards world betterment and equity in the classroom.

The impact of being honored as a Claes Nobel Educator of the Year lasts a lifetime! One is reminded that we are in the business of saving academic lives and that the best of the best for students is the best for ALL students. This honor amplifies what pedagogical practice is all about, whether we are in minority-majority schools, in schools with over 60 languages, in rural schools, in urban schools, in virtual classrooms... This award continues to inspire both my head and heart - and it generates a will and desire to empower educators everywhere!
