We are proud to announce that Rice Lake fifth grade teacher Denny Biljan is the only teacher in the state selected to attend the Mickelson Exxon Mobil Teachers Academy this summer. Participants are joined by math and science experts from the National Science Teachers Association and Math Solutions. The weeklong Academy deepens participants’ understanding of science and math and how children learn, and helps them discover innovative ways to teach. Mr. Biljan was selected from over 1, 500 applicants who had to describe their experience, passion, and hopes and dreams for the future. We are lucky to have Mr. Biljan working at Rice Lake and are pleased that he gets to continue his learning that will support all students. Way to go, Mr. Biljan!
