Intermediate Science Teacher Elizabeth Bilbao Wins New Educator Prize

Intermediate Science Teacher Elizabeth Bilbao won the first-ever Blue Heron Educator Award from the Chesapeake Bay Outward Bound School, which she will receive in October.

The Blue Heron Educator Award was designed to honor educators who embody the characteristics of agility, integrity, compassion, and perseverance, and have gone above and beyond to inspire those same traits in their students—both in and out of the classroom.

Her nomination was ranked highest by their panel of reviewers and they said it was their privilege to get to recognize professionals who serve their students in meaningful ways.
