Danville educator to receive Horace Mann Award for Teaching Excellence
CTA member Kimberley Gilles, a language arts educator at Monte Vista High School in Danville will receive the Horace Mann Award for Teaching Excellence, $10,000, and recognition as one of the nation’s top educators at the NEA Foundation’s Salute to Excellence in Education Awards Gala to be held in February in Washington, DC.
“Part of Kimberley’s great ability in teaching is her attention to diversity,” said Dean E. Vogel, president of CTA. “Diversity is integrated into the text books she chooses, the music she selects, the model essays she presents, and even the decor of her classroom.”
