Teacher of the Year Marilyn Leverson and Superintendent Rebecca Miner
Marilyn Leverson, math teacher at Kellogg Middle School, has been selected as the 2016 Shoreline Schools Teacher of the Year.
“There is no better representative for our district teachers and their professionalism, commitment and work ethic,” said Kellogg Principal Lisa Gonzalez. “Marilyn’s true passion is for the student who has never felt confident or capable in math. With her enthusiasm, her encouragement, and her tireless work ethic, she is able to convert student after student to liking math and seeing themselves as capable math students.”
Leverson has been an educator for 35 years; the last 16 have been with Shoreline Public Schools. She joined the District in 2000 as a math teacher at Shorecrest High School before transferring to Kellogg in 2012.
“I think Ms. Leverson deserves this award because she is always there for her students,” said 7th grade student Eden Ellis. “She is always there for her students in the classroom and during her free time. She is the definition of selfless. I’ve appreciated everything she has done for me throughout this year.”
The Teacher of the Year is selected annually by a committee of staff and community members from nominations received from around the District. The recipient also receives a professional development grant from the Shoreline Public Schools Foundation.
