Alliance School educator Stephanie Nook named ‘Outstanding First Year Teacher’

Stephanie NookTeachers new to their roles can make an immediate impact on students.

Just ask Stephanie Nook who was presented the Nancy Hoefs Memorial Award for Outstanding First Year Teachers for the 2014-15 school year by the Wisconsin Council of Teachers of English (WCTE) and the Wisconsin Conference on English Education. 

Nook teaches 9th grade English at The Alliance School of Milwaukee.

The award recognizes an outstanding first year teacher whose work and growth show promise for becoming a leader in the teaching of the English Language Arts.

In their evaluation of Nook, committee members said her lessons have worked to ensure that all students are continually challenged and are supported in ways, which help them become the next best version of themselves.

“Furthermore, your responsibility for the freshmen English curriculum and your involvement and lead roles in other school initiatives show that you do not have to be a veteran teacher to be a leader to have an immediate and lasting impact,” David Roloff, chairman of the Wisconsin Conference on English Education, wrote in a congratulatory letter to Nook.

Nook will receive her award during the WCTE state convention on October 16 at the UW-Milwaukee Continuing Education Conference Center in downtown Milwaukee.
