On this episode, Host Carly Flandro talks with Idaho’s 2024 teacher of the year, Trent Van Leuven. Trent is a career technical educator at Mackay Jr. Sr High. He tells EdNews about the unique lessons and projects he’s spearheaded with students, how Idaho’s in the “golden age” for CTE education, and his ideas for recruiting and retaining teachers in rural schools like his.
Favorite Teachers series
Who’s your favorite teacher? Nearly everyone has an answer to that question, because every year, and in every generation, teachers make a lifelong impact.
Somewhere in Idaho, even as you read this, an English teacher is helping a student feel valued when no one else can. A science teacher is stoking the curiosity of a future biologist. A choir teacher is encouraging a student to use their voice proudly, even when silence seems safer.
Our new, ongoing series will feature Idaho’s favorite teachers.
If you went to school in Idaho and have a teacher you’d like us to recognize, whether still in the classroom or retired, contact editor Jennifer Swindell, [email protected]. We’re looking forward to sharing your stories.
