Homestead High School teacher Adam Schenkel on Friday was named, in a surprise early morning announcement, Teacher of the Year for Southwest Allen County Schools.
“What an unbelievable honor,” said Schenkel, as he looked around the room where the announcement was made.
As the Radio and TV Director, Schenkel began his career at Homestead High School 13 years ago with goals to provide opportunity for students and to grow both the radio and TV programs.
This year, both the TV and radio program have received local and national recognition, the district said in a news release.
