We’re cheering for Ms. Stacey Morgan, Upper School Science Teacher and Head Athletic Trainer, who was awarded 2nd place for the Saint Louis Science Center‘s Loeb Prize for Excellence in Teaching Science and Mathematics!
Vital to our science program, Ms. Morgan has taught health and human body courses for 25 years while utilizing real case studies, diagnostic modeling and 3D-printing. The Loeb Prize, endowed in 2002 by a generous gift from the Loeb family, honors teachers who significantly enhance their students’ performances in science and mathematics.
Ms. Morgan was nominated by JK-12 Science Department Chair Bob Shaw. Besides highlighting her work in teaching health and human body courses for 25 years while utilizing real case studies, diagnostic modeling and 3D-printing to depict the muscular and skeletal systems, he shares, “Stacey’s role in our science program is vital. She reaches all learners in her classroom, advocates for all students and is one of the student body’s favorite teachers. She also has helped several colleagues find their way with alternative assessments, flipped classroom models, and project and inquiry-based learning. She mentors several adults that are new to our school or seeking to improve their curriculum beyond our school. Ms. Morgan’s quiet demeanor often hides her extremely dedicated work ethic, exemplary professionalism and willingness to do good things for kids.”
