Mt. Lebanon School District teacher receives Yale Educator Award
Mt. Lebanon SD is proud to announce that Susan Meer, Mt. Lebanon High School chemistry teacher, has been selected as a recipient of the 2016 Yale Educator Award.
This award, sponsored by the Yale Office of Undergraduate Admissions, recognizes teachers and counselors from around the world who inspire and support their students to perform at high levels and to achieve excellence. Students entering the Yale Class of 2020 were asked to nominate outstanding educators who have deeply impacted their lives.
Meer was nominated for the award by Nancy Lu, a 2016 Mt. Lebanon graduate, and then selected as a winner by a committee in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. In their announcement, the Yale selection committee noted, “As our committee reviewed nominations, we were constantly reminded of the unique and critical role that exceptional educators play in shaping their students’ futures by encouraging them to pursue their goals. The entire admissions office credits the excellent quality of this year’s freshman class to teachers and counselors like you who have been shaping our students long before they arrive at Yale.”
