Teacher of Year finds ‘genius’ in each pupil
Under the pretense of an emergency staff meeting, Homestead High School French teacher Marius Sagnon gathered with his colleagues Thursday morning only to learn they were there for a celebration.
Superintendent Phil Downs announced Sagnon as the Southwest Allen County Schools’ Teacher of the Year. The award honors, promotes and celebrates excellence in the teaching profession.
“I am humbled and honored by this award,” Sagnon said in a statement.
Candidates were nominated by principals, and finalists were chosen by a committee of administrators, parents and past recipients, according to a news release.
