November 26, 2013

Sarah Belkofer '06 has been teaching for only six years, yet she has already won the Huntington Teacher of the Year award - twice! For five years she has taught at Huntington Elementary School in Brunswick, Ohio, and says she loves every day. For the second year in a row, Belkofer has been recognized for her outstanding work with students.

While working toward her bachelor's degree at BW, Belkofer took a special education class that required her to assist in a special needs classroom. She told a reporter for a cleveland.com article, "After that class, I knew I wanted to be a teacher. I love interacting with kids and I love helping children grow. It is a very rewarding career."
