"A genuine, kind-hearted, and extremely caring person that you can absolutely tell lives and breathes being a teacher for her kids."
"Each and every student is special and she incorporates each child's 'uniqueness' into her curriculum."
The Citadel Heart of Learning Award was created in 2001 by Citadel and the Chester County Intermediate Unit. Now in its 16th year, the program honors and thanks teachers who show excellence in the classroom and have made a difference in the lives of students, their families, and the community. Thousands of nominations are submitted each year for teachers throughout Chester County.
“Every day teachers show tireless dedication to enhancing the lives of our students, and these nominations reaffirm that,” said Michael Schnably, Senior Vice-President at Citadel and Co-Chair for the Citadel Heart of Learning Award. “Teachers are an essential part of what makes our communities stronger, and we are proud to celebrate them with the Citadel Heart of Learning Award.”
Each year 15 finalists are selected from the nominations; one finalist from each of the 13 public school districts in Chester County, one from the Chester County Intermediate Unit, and one from a Chester County non-public school, which includes charter and home schools. All finalists receive $500 to use in their classroom and are honored at the Citadel Heart of Learning Awards banquet in May. Three winners are selected from the 15 finalists – one high school, one middle school, and one elementary school teacher – and each receives an additional $1,500 to use in their classroom.

Michael Rock’s new book, Dictators, Democrats, and Development in Southeast Asia: Implications for the Rest, was published by Oxford University Press this past September, but the Samuel and Etta Wexler Professor of Economic History says he’s been wrestling with the ideas in it for more than 20 years.
Since 1995, Rock says, he’s been thinking and writing about how Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand managed to succeed at both development and democracy.
