EMPORIA, Kan. (AP) — Five teachers from across the country will be the latest additions to the National Teachers Hall of Fame at Emporia State University in eastern Kansas.
Surprise announcements were made last week at the teachers’ schools.
The new inductees are Baltimore science teacher David Brock; Millers Creek, N.C., English and photojournalism teacher James Brooks; Crystal, Minn., fifth- and sixth- grade teacher Scott Charlesworth-Seiler; Maywood, Ill., science teacher Glenn Lid; and Eau Claire, Wis., health education teacher Deborah Tackmann.
The inductees will be honored May 8 during a reception at the Washington headquarters of the National Education Association.
In June they will be in Emporia for a recognition banquet and the induction ceremony. The trip also will give them a chance to meet students and attend a roundtable discussion and community events.
