Teacher of The Year (DVD)
Since 1994, Illinois Teacher of the Year Deb Perryman has worked to transform her students into natural resource and community advocates. During the 2003-04 school year, her students volunteered in 130 classrooms, implemented a district wide reading program, stenciled 800 storm drains and taught over 7,000 younger learners about Illinois' Natural History. Her students see their place in the community and the importance of protecting natural resources. Learn more about Deb, her students, and her teaching techniques in Teacher of the Year.
