Iowa Educator Receives DuPont AgriSCIENCE Award for Teaching Excellence
Date:3/21/2013

Wilmington, Del. (PRWEB) March 21, 2013

Barbara Lemmer, agriscience teacher, Linn-Mar High School, Marion, Iowa, will receive the George Washington Carver AgriSCIENCE Teacher’s Award in recognition of her teaching excellence at the DuPont dinner held annually during the National Science Teachers Association’s (NSTA) national conference, April 11-14 in San Antonio, Texas. The DuPont dinner will be hosted at the Alamo in downtown San Antonio.

Miller, president of DuPont Crop Protection. “Barbara exemplifies the new model of teacher that we need – well-grounded in the best teaching methods – to prepare the next generation to help solve the challenges of our changing world. Agriscience is part of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education and Barbara is the embodiment of the training required and the enthusiasm necessary to help our students become future scientists and leaders in agriscience.”

“I am surprised and elated to be named the DuPont George Washington Carver Agriscience Teacher of the Year,” said Lemmer. “Science and agriculture are my favorite things in life. Combining my two passions seemed like a hair brain idea many years ago. Now (I am happy to see that) everyone sees the importance of both.”

Lemmer, a 1982 graduate in Agricultural Education and Studies from Iowa State University, Ames, Iowa, has been a high school agriscience teacher for more than 30 years, joining the Linn-Mar faculty in 2004. In that time and in a largely urban school, Lemmer has helped increase enrollment in the agriscience curriculum by more t
