On April 1st, BVP Middle School 1 Teacher Rhochelle Krawetz was honored with the Maitland P. Simmons Memorial Award at the National Science Teacher’s Association (NSTA) National Conference in Nashville – an honor given to up to 25 K-12 teachers annually. Ms. Krawetz who is in her second year of teaching at BVP (and fourth overall) received her undergraduate degree from the University of Chicago and her master’s degree from the Relay Graduate School of Education.

Ms. Krawetz shared her reaction to receiving the award, “I am honored to receive this award for so many reasons, but most importantly to be able to have a platform to raise awareness for high quality, inquiry-based science education. Science creates critical thinkers and students need to think like scientists to be successful in today’s world.”
