Janice Wenger, a third-grade teacher at the Center for Creative Learning, has been selected as a finalist in the 2012 Missouri Teacher of the Year program. School districts across the state submit their top teachers for consideration in the program, and Wenger is one of six to be named a finalist.
“We’re excited Janice’s contributions to her students, school and the district have been recognized by the state,” said Superintendent Bruce Borchers, Ph.D. “Our schools are outstanding because of teachers like her, and we’re proud to have her represent Rockwood in this program.”
Wenger will travel to Jefferson City on Aug. 6 to interview for the honor of being named the 2012 Missouri Teacher of the Year. The six finalists will also be recognized at the Missouri Teacher of the Year banquet on Oct. 15.
