Students and Staff Surprised Their Teacher
Students and staff at Broadview-Thomson K-8 surprised and congratulated teacher Shana Brown who was recently recognized by the United States Department of Education as a great educator.
Brown was honored at the National Teacher of the Year ceremony at the White House. Brown serves as a teacher leader in the integration of Native history curriculum into K through 12 social studies and is the principal author of Washington state's newly required curriculum: "Since Time Immemorial: Tribal Sovereignty in Washington State".
Brown has also conducted training on behalf of Seattle Public Schools, the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction and the National Indian Education Association, the organization that nominated her for this honor.
Currently she is working with the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of the American Indian on their new online initiative, Native Knowledge 360°.
