Lindsay Murray acceptance speech

Still trembling, fourth-grade teacher Lindsay Murray thanks the Cundiff Elementary community and the Milken Family Foundation, with Virginia Superintendent of Public Instruction Dr. Steven R. Staples (left) and Dr. Jane Foley, senior vice president of the Milken Educator Awards, looking on proudly.

Murray was instrumental in the implementation of the Virginia Children’s Engineering program, now part of the curriculum throughout the region's elementary schools. She blends STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) with project-based learning to meet the requirements of the state standards and has launched several student research projects to encourage more hands-on learning. Foley asks Murray why STEM is such a strong focus in her classroom. "That's the way of the future," she responds. "In the 21st century, those are the skills they are going to need."
