A Montgomery County teacher has been named Pennsylvania Teacher of the Year.
34-year-old Jeffrey Chou teaches sixth grade at Highland Elementary School in the Abington District. He uses a wide variety of modern technology tools in the classroom, and he also set up and ran a program to help other teachers advance their technology skills. He says teachers need to be good at teaching techniques and also good at showing students their endless potential. He was chosen from twelve finalists, including Upper Perkiomen Middle School Reading Specialist Michele Fokes, to represent the state in the national competition.
