Second-graders at Amy Biehl Community School surround their beloved teacher Melissa Kovac after her surprise Milken Educator Award notification. Kovac engages her students with a multitude of hands-on activities, including her learning-focused theatrical flair that extends to her students. For a unit exploring the biographies of famous Americans, for example, students fashioned three-dimensional heads of the person they were studying, wrote a five-paragraph essay—no small undertaking for second-graders—and then presented their research to the class while wearing their subjects' likenesses.
