Palm Beach Central High School teacher Maureen Holtzer won the Education Visionary Award at the Inlet Grove sponsored “My Teacher, My Hero” ceremony on Saturday, May 30 at the Palm Beach Convention Center.
Teachers were nominated by students in a variety of categories. Holtzer is a Holocaust studies and law studies teacher. This school year, she created a “jumping borders” curriculum, through which her students worked jointly on genocide-related projects with students in Poland and Serbia via Skype and social media.
