A LEARNING SOLUTIONS HUB
Two teachers in District 49 scored regional recognition for going above and beyond in their classrooms. Amy Levi, third-grade teacher at Ridgeview Elementary, and Kortney Sorensen, P.E./health teacher at Falcon High School, were selected as honorees in the Air Force Academy’s “Extra Yard for Teachers” campaign.
P.E. teacher Jedd Sims wanted a lesson for his Falcon Middle School students different from the rest. “I’m a big basketball fan and thought it would be unique for our kids to meet a former NBA player,” Sims shared. That’s when he learned about the Denver Nuggets Community Ambassadors.
D49 Chief Education Officer Peter Hilts looked out over a small crowd Monday, July 22. "How many of you out here are going to be students at Inspiration View?” He asked. "Raise your hands high!”
