Amy SheehanCongratulations to the 2019 Emerson Excellence in Teaching award recipient, Amy Sheehan. Mrs. Sheehan has been teaching Physical Education for the past 14 years.  Amy is seen as a source of positive energy in both Marine and St. Jacob elementary schools.  Her work in the classroom and throughout the building is built on celebrating success through high energy activities in a contagious instructional environment.  Mrs. Sheehan models and develops strong student and staff relationships as she coordinates many building events over the course of each school year.  Her passion for developing the whole child is seen through her leadership and instruction with the Cub Club and Marine Corps running groups.  In addition, Mrs. Sheehan developed the Read, Right and Run Marathon program where students work towards running an entire marathon over an extended amount of time, while also documenting the time that they have read and completed good deeds during the duration of the program.  Mrs. Sheehan is an exceptional educator and Triad is fortunate to have her working with students, colleagues, and parents each day.

Each year, Emerson recognizes teachers throughout the St. Louis metropolitan area with an Excellence in Teaching Award. This award recognizes educators for their leadership in and passion for teaching, their contributions to student learning, and their knowledge and creativity. Awards are given during Emerson’s Excellence in Teaching reception each November.

Award recipients will have the opportunity to apply for a Gold Star Grant from Emerson. Honorees from this year and the past five years are eligible to apply for the competitive grants, which are designed to fund educational projects that reflect the pillars of the Emerson brand – technology, innovation and leadership.
