The Wooster City School District is proud to announce that Diane Mealey, a language arts teacher at Wooster High School, has been named a 2019 Outstanding Educator by The University of Chicago.
“I didn’t even know I was nominated, so receiving this award was a fantastic surprise,” said Mealey. “The award is such an honor and I'm thankful I was able to make a difference in the nominator’s educational career.”
Each year, The University of Chicago gives its newly admitted students the opportunity to nominate the teachers who made a difference in their lives. More than one-third of the incoming freshman class responded with inspiring stories of educators who helped influence them for the better. The University of Chicago Outstanding Educator Awards highlights education’s power to transform the lives of students.
“I am very proud of Diane for being recognized by one of her former students for her dedication to teaching,” said Wooster High School Principal Tyler Keener. “She is a great example of the outstanding educators we have at Wooster City Schools. Congratulations, Diane, on such a wonderful testament to your hard work.”
