SM East’s National Honor Society voted social studies teacher Vicki Arndt-Helgeson teacher of the year on Thursday morning. Arndt-Helgeson was informed of the honor on Friday morning at the beginning of first hour.
A group of thirty students entered Arndt-Helgeson’s first hour class and Morgan Satterlee made the announcement. Satterlee said the vote was close but Arndt-Helgeson edged out several other close contenders.
“Yoda deserved the teacher of the year because she enveloped the four pillars that NHS is all about. She is committed to developing not only the mind of her students, but their character as well,” Satterlee said.
Arndt-Helgeson will accept the award at the National Honor Society induction in February.
