Stephanie Walsh - Social Studies
Congratulations to Rangeview High Schoolteacher Stephanie Walsh for earning the Colorado Council for Social Studies “Colorado Civic Educator of the Year” award!
Walsh, nominated by her Raiders colleagues, is hailed for going above and beyond to teach her 10-12th grade students civics, politics and American government. She also serves as an adjunct professor at the Community College of Aurora. This allows Walsh to teach college level courses at Rangeview, providing students a unique opportunity to earn both high school and college credits in Social Studies.
Walsh accepted the prestigious award at the CCSS “Bridging the Divides” conference held at the History Colorado Center. Governor Hickenlooper proudly presented Walsh the well-deserved honor, a moment that her family and team in attendance won’t soon forget.
In APS, we believe student achievement and growth are driven by a highly-effective and respected staff working as a team. Walsh adds to our synergy in ways a district could only hope for. We are thankful for her dedication to education and her undying passion to help students understand such important topics.
Way to go, Walsh! - Story from: Aurorak12.org
