Lisa Dwyer, a special education teacher at West Geauga High School, has been awarded the Franklin B. Walter Outstanding Educator Award for 2019.
Said Dwyer, “I am beyond honored to be recognized for this award. Teaching is my passion and my students are my pride. Each day I come in to teach my students and each night I leave with my students teaching me.”
The Franklin B. Walter Outstanding Educator Award was created in honor of the State Superintendent of Public Instruction in the State of Ohio. He held that post from 1977 until 1991. Among Dr. Walter’s achievements was his work to develop planned instruction for children with disabilities in the State of Ohio.
