Willott receives Proclamation Award

Earlier today, Representative Kathie Conway presented Steve Willott with a proclamation for being named the Missouri Math Teacher  for Excellence in Teaching Math, Science, and Technology. Willot was nominated by former science teacher Paula Young, who has also received this award for her teaching excellence in science.

“We learned about the national recognition and we are able to in the House and Senate have the option to make a proclamation,” House Representative Kathie Conway said. “It’s a special recognition we are able to do and we believed Mr. Willott was deserving of that.”

Earlier this year, Willott traveled to Washington D.C. to receive the Presidential Award of Excellence in Math which was presented to him by President Obama. When nominated for this award, the nominees must go through an application portfolio, and after continuing through the portfolio the teachers would be selected at the state level out of the 520 school districts that are in Missouri.

Willott continues to teach math classes at North, including Advanced Placement classes, as well as teaching classes at St. Charles Community College. He also serves on the  District Curriculum Committee to help revise the math curriculum that is used in schools throughout the school district.

“He is an inspiration and a model in all ways, very professional, positive, energetic,  and student centered,” Principal Darlene Jones said.
