Congratulations to UEHS math teacher Elizabeth Waite on receiving the Yale Educator Award. She was nominated by UEHS 2018 graduate and valedictorian Jeffery Yu, who is currently a freshman at Yale.
Last Monday 83 teachers and counselors from around the world received the news that they have been recognized with a Yale Educator Award, an honor given by the Yale Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Winners received an engraved desk set with a note of congratulations.
Every summer for the past 10 years, the Yale Office of Undergraduate Admissions has presented the Yale Educator Award to teachers and counselors who “supported and inspired their students to achieve at high levels.” Incoming freshmen are asked to nominate a teacher and/or counselor who had been instrumental in their educational success.
