Glen Andersen – UCET Outstanding Teacher of the Year (Washington County School District, Teacher Grade 5) “ Every time I am in Mr. Andersen's classroom, it strikes me that THIS is what education is about, THIS is what every child deserves. He understands how technology can individualize and inspire learning in students. I often see his students deeply engaged in work on their ipads whether responding to their classmates or teachers in writing, creating movies, practicing math skills, taking an assessment, or working on a class project. Our profession needs more “Mr. Andersens”; he not only understands what he needs to do in order to be successful in the classroom, he willingly shares his expertise and passion with all those around him.”
