  • Celebrating Teachers

    In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, we asked our teachers to tell us in one sentence what they love most about teaching honors. We received some really great responses. To see what our teachers have, check out our Facebook page

    As a thank you, we drew a name from all of the teachers who participated and awarded a conference registration to Athena Mericsko. Athena says “I love when students return years later to tell me that I challenged them to think, and that made a difference in their lives today.” Thanks to all the dedicated professionals who make honors excellent.
