Ann Jacob is the winner of the Arts and Science Council’s (ASC) Cato Excellence in Teaching Award.

NTES would like to recognize one of our outstanding teachers, who has recently been named winner of the Arts and Science Council’s (ASC) Cato Excellence in Teaching Award. The annual award recognizes teachers who have distinguished themselves in teaching art, science, or history. Each Cato award recipient receives $1,500 and a sculpture by local artist Greg Scott.

Ann Jacob, an AIG reading and math teacher, is in her 29th year of teaching. She has been at NTES for the past four years. She won the award in the history category.

Over her teaching career, Ms. Jacob has received 45 grants to incorporate innovative strategies in the classroom. A recent grant gave her students the chance to learn how art can be used to tell stories, communicate ideas and promote understanding of the world and its history.

Congratulations, Mrs. Jacob. Well-deserved!
