Aberdeen High School’s Barb Page has been named Teacher of the Year at the regional district level. Page was named local school district teacher of the year recently.
“It’s really exciting, a great honor,” said School District Supt. Tom Opstad at Tuesday night’s school board meeting. “Barb’s really excited.”
“This recognition reinforced my commitment to doing what I set out to do 23 years ago and that is to help students navigate the rigors of a public education while learning to become productive citizens,” Page said Tuesday night.
Page demonstrates a high level of commitment to teaching and has made significant contributions to the lives of her students, the regional letter says.
Page teaches reading, writing and the AVID college preparation courses at the high school. She just finished helping yearbook students put together the 2014 Lip Dub for the high school.
Page was named top teacher for the Capitol Region, known as Educational Service District 113, which represents 44 school districts in Grays Harbor, Pacific and parts of Lewis, Mason and Thurston counties. There are nine regions in the state. The state’s teacher of the year will be named in September.
