Alumni Honored with Distinguished Fellowship

Shawn Tiegs, ’12, has been selected by one of 27 STEM educators nationwide for the 2013-14 prestigious Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellowship Program by the Triangle Coalition for Science and Technology Education. Educators will serve in Washington, D.C., for 11 months beginning in September at sponsoring agencies. Tiegs will be serving his term at the Department of Energy. He was selected through a rigorous process from a pool of 200 applicants. The program provides practical classroom insight in guiding education programs and policies, especially those related to STEM education.

Tiegs is a full-time math and science teacher at Nezperce High School and earned a master of education through the Wright Fellowship Program.

“The special part about being a Wright Fellow is that all the classes are face-to-face and small in size. You really feel like you are part of a group of excellent teachers who are on a journey together to improve themselves,” said Tiegs, who teaches at the high school he attended.
