Congratulations to Judy Treichler, a second grade teacher at 12th and Marion Elementary. She was awarded the Pennsylvania Earth Science Teachers Association (PAESTA) Excellence in Teaching Award for 2015.
She was awarded this at the National Earth Science Teachers Association Convention at the Philadelphia Convention Center, during the PAESTA conference in November.
"She's a fantastic 2nd grade teacher and has been a leader in spreading the word about PAESTA and teaching science at the elementary school level," says fellow teacher Elisa Wounderly.
PAESTA's mission is to facilitate and advance excellence in Earth and Space science education across the state of Pennsylvania. If any RSD faculty would like to join PAESTA, membership is free! You do not have to be a science teacher. For more information, visit
