Chimere HackneyOn April 19, students at GATES High School were on hand to congratulate Chimere Hackney in receiving the 2018 Distinguished PK-12 Educator of the Year Award from Evergreen State College.

Hackney, a 2010 graduate of Evergreen State University's Master's in Teaching (MiT) program was selected because of her exemplary work as an educator and for representing the MiT program with distinction.

It was clear from students' energetic response that Hackney's influence extends English Language Arts instruction. Her time in the spotlight was shortlived as she quickly turned the focus to GATES students thanking them for their patience in her development as an educator and for the ways that they have have taught her.

A recent story on local NPR affiliate KNKX provides insight into the unique away that Hackney approaches her work. Congratulations Chimere!
