Surprise! Ginger Giessler of Fort Wayne is IN’s 2013-14 Milken Educator
What does a language arts teacher say when she’s completely surprised and honored with a $25,000 prize? Ginger Giessler of New Tech Academy at Wayne High School in Fort Wayne, IN teaches writing, but she’ll have to get used to public speaking now that she’s been announced the 2013 Milken Educator Award winner for Indiana! In front of a schoolwide assembly, VIPs and media, Dr. Jane Foley of the Milken Family Foundation revealed that they were all actually there to recognize an outstanding educator’s achievement—and potential—and then presented Giessler with a $25,000 check to spend as she pleases.
