Top Teacher Tour
Editor Shelley Basinger was determined to surprise each of our 15 Top Teachers at their schools this year. So in January, she scheduled 15 school visits in roughly three weeks. It was a lot of work—but it was more than worth it to make these teachers smile! Here is a look at a few of her visits:

“I was so surprised and excited to receive this award! What an honor!” – Kate Dillard, surprised at the Altavista Elementary faculty meeting

“Thank you for stopping by yesterday, Shelley. What an honor.” – Elizabeth Wendland, surprised during class at the Bedford Science and Technology Center

“Thank you for the presentation you made at our faculty meeting last week. I was caught completely off-guard!” – Mike Bremer, surprised during a faculty meeting at Sandusky Middle School

“That was sweet of you to take the time to come to our school to present the award. I am very appreciative of the honor…” – Lynn Tolley, surprised in front of an assembly at Amelon Elementary School

“Thank you so much for surprising me with the beautifully framed and matted award, it was such an honor to receive.” – Yvonne Hansotte, surprised during a horticulture class at Brookville High School

“I was totally surprised and consider it such an honor!” – Fred Schmidt, surprised while he taught math at Jefferson Forest High School
