Two Frederick County Public Schools teachers recently received recognition for excellent work with students:  Sharon Steger at Middletown High and Dana Wiles at North Frederick Elementary.  A third, Jennifer Siderius, has work published in the Journal of the American Association of School Librarians’ September/October issue.

            The Maryland Association of Science Teachers (MAST) named Sharon Steger the state-level 2011-12 High School Teacher Showing Excellence in Science Education. MAST presented her a one-year membership, $200 and a plaque to commemorate her award. The association is also paying for Ms. Steger and Middletown High School Principal Jay Berno to attend its fall conference. 

            The National Association of Gifted Children selected Dana Wiles as winner of this year’s national conference scholarship. The 2011 Javits-Frasier Scholarship for Diverse Talent Development recognized the success Ms. Wiles achieved last year at Monocacy Elementary with highly able students from diverse backgrounds, historically under-represented in gifted programs. The scholarship covers registration for the national conference and accommodations in New Orleans.

            New Market Elementary media specialist Jennifer Wetzel Siderius wrote What’s Your Game Plan? Developing Library Games Can Help Students Master Information Skills, published in Knowledge Quest, the Journal of the American Association of School Librarians.  Ms. Wetzel Siderius is a nationally certified media specialist in her second year at FCPS. She also authored Liven Up Your Library: Creative and Inexpensive Programming Ideas, a book geared for school media specialists.
