Isaac Stewart, a 2009 KSTF Teaching Fellow, was recently named as a winner of the 2013 Outstanding New Biology Teacher award sponsored by Ken-A-Vision and the National Association of Biology Teachers (NABT). This award recognizes outstanding teaching (grades 7-12 only) by a “new” biology/life science instructor within his/her first three years of teaching who has developed an original and outstanding program or technique, and made a contribution to the profession at the start of his/her career. Stewart, a biology teacher at Fisher High School, will receive a recognition plaque at the NABT Professional Development Conference, along with a microscope and a complimentary one year NABT membership. His win marks the third consecutive year that a KSTF Teaching Fellow has been recognized in this capacity.
Stewart was also chosen to serve as the Head of the Science Department for Fisher Junior/Senior High School, located in Fisher, Ill.
