All those outstanding educators out there never do get enough credit. But one longtime Browning teacher got a boost in the form of a $25,000 award this week. Sheila Hall has been an elementary school teacher in Browning for eight years and was chosen based on factors like exceptional educational talent and exemplary educational accomplishments beyond the classroom.
The story is courtesy of the Superintendent of Public Instruction’s office:
Montana Superintendent of Public Instruction Denise Juneau singled out one of Montana’s 10,624 teachers – Sheila Hall – as being an outstanding educator and recipient of the $25,000 Milken Family Foundation National Educator Award at a surprise assembly today at Browning Elementary School.
Browning is located on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation in northwestern Montana.
Hall, a third-grade teacher, was shocked when Juneau called her name. A Browning native, Hall has worked at Browning Elementary for eight years and is one of 55 educators who will be recognized across the country this year.
“I was floored. I never imagined in my wildest dreams that I would receive such a prestigious award for something that I love to do and do every day,” Hall said. “I want all of my students to be successful and have the same opportunities I had.”
