Greg Lineweaver is the Chair of the English Department at North Central High School in Indianapolis, Indiana. At the time of the award, Lineweaver was an English teacher at Herron High School, a Classical, college-preparatory charter school in Indianapolis, where he was also a founding faculty member. In 2006-2007, the first year the school opened, all students in the first graduating class were accepted to colleges. In his second year at Herron, Lineweaver's students had some of the highest English test scores on record in the county. As a classroom teacher and now as a school administrator, Lineweaver's success has largely been due to his unwavering focus on student and teacher development. With each new class, Lineweaver talks with parents and students in order to understand students' unique identities inside and outside of the classroom and then helps teachers construct the best learning environment for each individual class. He deeply values each student's personal expression and has used a variety of creative mediums to engage students.
