The Klingenstein Teacher Award is presented annually to an outstanding teacher, nominated and selected by their peers, who brings the spirit and values of EL Education to life in their classroom. The award was established with generous support from Lee Klingenstein, Founding Chair of the EL Education Board of Directors (1927-2020), with continued support from the Klingenstein Foundation.
EL Education is proud to announce the 2022 Klingenstein Teacher Award recipient is Anne Smith, a Kindergarten teacher at Polaris Charter Academy in Chicago, IL. Learn more.
