SHAMOKIN DAM — On April 19, the Business and Education Committee of the Greater Susquehanna Valley Chamber of Commerce recognized their seventh Excellence in Education Award winner.
The Excellence in Education Award winner for the month of April is Mrs. Varano-Delgado, of Shikellamy High School. Varano-Delgado was nominated by two of her students, Annie Herbster and Jenna Bubb, for her exceptional dedication to her students.
Annie wrote the statement, “Senora is the most dedicated teacher I have ever had. She comes in to school more than an hour and a half before she is required to get a head start on the day.”
Jenna mentioned, “I’ve had a lot of teachers thus far in my education and Senora is one of those rare teachers that you find that are there for the students, not themselves, or the money, for the students. She has taught me everything I know about Spanish — the language, the countries that speak it, the culture of those countries, everything. Senora is the most dedicated teacher I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting.”
