Lisa Richard Wins OR's Milken Educator AwardPioneer School | Lebanon, OR | Dec 13, 2016
Hands up! Back in the classroom, Milken Award recipient Lisa Richard and Dr. Jane Foley, senior vice president of the Milken Educator Awards, talk with Richard's third-graders about what they are learning that they will remember forever. Said one student: "I will always remember the day my teacher got the Milky Way award."
Richard creates extraordinary learning opportunities for her students, both in and out of the classroom. Once a year she brings students together with residents of a local veterans’ home; students serve the veterans dinner and present projects about the wars in which the veterans have served, and the residents share their war stories with the students.
