WHS Teacher Wins Award

West High School teacher, Jodi Zimmerman, has been chosen 2013 Teacher of the Year by the Scott County Soil and Water District. Zimmerman, a Social Studies teacher,  was chosen for her work in educating students about the challenges people face today trying to live in harmony with other species.  She founded the West High School Ecology Club in 2005 to engage students in service learning activities such as Earth Day, Boundary Waters trips and “Tree Hugger” trivia nights. “I take students out on clean up missions,  perform water testing at area creeks, recycle bottles, and help students find other opportunities to volunteer in the community.” said Zimmerman. “It’s great to see youth involved in caring for our environment.”
