NORWALK, Conn. -- Brien McMahon High School Science Chair and teacher Tom Seuch is one of 12 educators awarded a $15,000 grant through Nellie Mae’s 2017 Lawrence W. O’Toole Teacher Leadership Awards.
The O’Toole awards recognize public high school teachers who are advancing student-centered approaches to learning throughout New England. Seuch worked with the BMHS Center for Secondary School Redesign to revamp the school’s advisory program and connect students with adult mentors in weekly advisory meetings. He also created a vibrant summer transition academy with a focus on hands-on math and science projects.
Seuch will use the grant to develop a team of teacher leaders for personalized, student-centered teaching to support other BMHS teachers, with the goal of expanding advocacy to other schools and surrounding towns by leading a student-centered symposium.
