South Canton Teacher Wins Teacher of the Year Award

Press Release

5/29/2015

South Canton Pic.JPGA South Canton Scholars Charter Academy teacher is the first recipient of Grand Valley State University’s Teacher of the Year award. On Monday, May 18, first-grade teacher Megan Dziedzic learned she won the award during a surprise ceremony.
“I was very surprised, excited, and honored to be chosen,” said Dziedzic.
The charter school authorizer asked for nominations from all of its schools. Principals, deans, and teachers were asked to write a detailed description of each nominee and how they are making a difference in the classroom.
“My favorite approach for reaching students who are having a difficulty understanding a concept is to first build a relationship with them,” Dziedzic said. “I take time to become familiar with their interests and incorporate this knowledge to make my lessons more engaging and purposeful.”
Megan started her career at South Canton Scholars four years ago and loves the devoted community of staff members, families, and students.
“Throughout the past four years, I have established relationship that have enriched my skills as a teacher and my passion for learning,” Dziedzic said.
Along with an award, Megan will also receive a $1,000 donation from the GVSU Charter Schools Office toward a classroom project or supplies.
