Dawes Middle School teacher honored

Posted By: Nolan Crane


After sifting through hundreds of nominations LPS officials found the top five educators for their annual Teacher Recognition Day. Only one middle school teacher made the cut. Here’s Wednesday, March fourths “Excellence in Education”.

Nate Miller has been teaching science to seventh and eight grade students at Dawes Middle School in Lincoln for three years. He hopes his  students learn more than just biology when they enter the classroom. He wants them to be successful in life. Angelina Nahorny nominated him because class isn’t only educational, it’s also a lot of fun.

“We just got done with building roller coasters, we did catapults, we did a bunch of different things and he makes it fun and you want to get involved with it,” says Angelina Nahorny.

“I think the biggest thing is when I actually get to see the letter. That’s when it’s like an honor and humbling of what she said,” says Nate Miller.

Miller hopes he can have a positive influence on all of his students at Dawes Middle School for years to come. 

Thursday we’ll go to Sheridan Elementary School and showcase one of two grade school teacher winners.
