The Twin Cities Chapter of ACE (Architecture, Construction, and Engineering), a mentorship program dedicated to inspiring student discovery of math and science focused fields of work, has named Edison math teacher Angela King the ACE Teacher of hte Year.  This is Ms. King's first time accepting the award.  She is also the first teacher from Edisont to recieve the honor.  Congratulations, Ms. King!  Read on to learn just some of the high praise for Ms. King that was given during the awards ceremony. 

From one of the mentors:

“It’s been very rewarding to work with Angela on getting the ACE program started at Edison. This year, she was instrumental in publicizing the program, connecting mentors with other faculty members, getting ACE listed in the official after school program listings, and arranging opportunities to connect mentors with students at various activities. It is also a joy to watch Angela working with the students. She knows so many of students at Edison, and she is always willing to spend time one-on-one with them to make sure they get the help they need. I know those personal connections Angela has cultivated are the real reason why ACE was able to succeed. We couldn’t have done it without you, Ms. King!”

 

From a student:

“Ms. King is truly a teacher who I believe I can talk to about anything. As a part of ACE, she is always willing to work around our schedule and she has been very encouraging when it come to our project. Whatever we choose to do with our project, she is always very supportive. Aside from ACE, she’s always willing to hear about other things like my grades or family. She’s very caring always asking how I feel and if there’s anything she can do to help me with anything. Ms. King is definitely a teacher I look up to, because of the advice she gives me for school and out of school. I’m very happy to have met her this year.”
