Shayé Whitmer, Upper Division math and science teacher at The Evergreen School, has won the William Dahlgren Award, recognizing outstanding K-12 teachers for inspiring students in math, science and engineering fields.

The award, given by SAMPE (the Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering), includes a prize of $500, and particularly targets teachers who encourage general entrepreneurship and excel according to the following criteria:
  • Excellence: Motivating students to achieve their best.
  • Integrity: Consistently thinking, sometimes doing more than what is required.
  • Respect: Treating each student as valuable and full of potential.
  • Innovation: Inspiring students to explore and create on their own from what is taught. 

In presenting the award, SAMPE Foundation President Dr. Leslie Cohen, Evergreen parent Bob LaFramboise — who nominated Shayé — and Head of School Ronnie Codrington-Cazeau, along with a group of administrators and teachers, surprised Shayé in the midst of a 6th grade science class, delighting his students.
