Idaho Teacher Wins Tolerance Award

A teacher in southwestern Idaho is among a five educators nationwide being recognized by the Southern Poverty Law Center's anti-bias education project. The law center issued a statement Monday saying Sonia Galviz of Nampa and four other educators will be the first to receive its Teaching Tolerance Award for Excellence in Culturally Responsive Teaching. A ceremony is planned Dec. 9 in Washington, D.C. The Alabama-based organization says the award recognizes educators who have demonstrated excellence in teaching students from diverse racial, ethnic and cultural backgrounds. Galviz and the other winners will each receive $1,000. Galviz teaches in the Nampa School District/Idaho Statesman.

Question: Are you surprised/delighted that an Idaho teacher would win the first Teaching Tolerance Award from the Southern Poverly Law Center?
