Mrs. Beery ~ Distinguished Chemistry TeacherI want to share some very exciting news with the Shark family. Mrs. Sarah Beery has been named “A Distinguished Chemistry Teacher,” by the American Chemical Society, Midland, Michigan Branch. I had the privilege of joining Mrs. Beery at an Award and Recognition dinner on May 16th, in Mount Pleasant, where she was recognized for her excellence in the teaching of chemistry, and her consistent dedication to the rigor and expectation of science education leading to student success.
I also had the privilege to see the presentation Mrs. Beery helped to facilitate when her AP Chemistry students did a Bill Nye, the Science Guy, kind of show for the students at Nikkari Elementary School. Mrs. Beery continues to push her students to develop a solid knowledge, enthusiastic appreciation and willing sharing of their advanced understanding of Chemistry. As the principal of St. Louis High School, I want to thank Sarah Beery, again, for her dedication to the improving academic culture of our school. This recent honor bestowed upon her by the ACS was well deserved and additional evidence of the fact that we have great teachers in our school. I am thrilled to be able to work with this staff. I know the students of our school are the direct beneficiaries. Mrs. Beery is an important part of what we hope to bring to all students in hopes of meeting our mission and vision for all kids.
