Stephenson teacher honored 

STEPHENSON — Ron Waara was recently honored by the Menominee County Advisory Committee with the Remarkable Special Education Educator of the Year Award for the 2018-2019 school year. Waara teaches third grade at Stephenson Elementary School. He was nominated by Lynda Putnam, special education teacher at Stephenson Elementary School. Waara strives to make sure all students are responsible for their learning while meeting each one at his/her level and pushing them forward. Students with special needs are intentionally included in class discussions and Q&A periods at their level making sure they achieve success with the question or task.

The learning environment created by Waara is conducive to learning for all students. Waara is also said to be able to connect with students and support them outside of the classroom.

Carol Bergquist, Liasion to PAC, said, “This is proof of remarkable qualities, of which you should be proud. We are fortunate to have you working with our children.”
