Art Teacher Michael Zaba Wins CT AwardMichael Zaba (CT '18) | Louis Toffolon Elementary School | Plainville, CT | Jan 23, 2019
There's reason to celebrate at Louis Toffolon Elementary. The school's STEM initiatives, including a robust makerspace, have earned Plainville Community Schools a District of Distinction Award. Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont and State Education Commissioner Dr. Dianna R. Wentzell are here for an all-school assembly ... but there's another reason for their visit, and it involves a big check for one outstanding educator. When Dr. Jane Foley, senior vice president of the Milken Educator Awards, surprises art teacher Michael Zaba with Connecticut's 2018-19 Award and $25,000, the educator's life is forever changed.
