EMSD37 is proud to announce that Sanchia Sommer has been awarded the STEM Teacher of the Year, by the Quad City Engineering & Science Council. The purpose of the QCESC awards is to pay tribute and recognize Engineering and Science Professionals whose exceptional achievements and outstanding contributions have made a lasting impact on technology, society, and their profession. This includes helping to promote and raise the awareness of STEM (Engineering, Science, Technology, and Mathematics) education and careers in our local communities including in our schools.
Superintendent Kristin Humphries said, "It's a no-brainer for those that know Sanchia and have had the opportunity to see her work. She's relentless when it comes to opening new doors for our students. It's nice to see a local organization recognize teachers for their important work. And it's nice to see an EMSD teacher recognized for her extraordinary efforts!"
