Posted by Joel Schlessinger in Community

Every year, the Millard Public Schools Foundation honors top scholars and educators at its Hall of Fame Banquet.

Joel Schlessinger generously underwrites an outstanding high school teacher with the Skin Specialist Award for Excellence in Secondary Teaching.

This year’s recipient was Tyler Berzina, a Physics and AP Physics teacher at Millard West High School.

Mr. Berzina’s instructional strategies, application of technology and variety of approaches are second to none. He also establishes excellent relationships with students and creates an inviting classroom environment.

Some of Mr. Berzina’s awards include:

  • U.S. Department of Education American Star of Teaching for Nebraska
  • Millard Public Schools Employee of the Month
  • University of Nebraska-Lincoln Outstanding Mentor Award
  • National Science Foundation Presidential Award for Excellence in Math and Science.

Tyler is grateful for the award and for Joel Schlessinger’s support of the Millard Public Schools Foundation.

“It’s so nice to know that members of our community appreciate quality education by going above and beyond in supporting awards like the Hall of Fame. Thanks Dr. Schlessinger!”
