Eagles honor Susquehannock teacher at game
- A local science teacher was honored by the Philadelphia Eagles at a preseason game.
- Laura Krotzer, a science teacher at Susquehannock High School, received a $1,000 donation for school supplies.
Susquehannock High School science teacher Laura Krotzer was recognized at a Philadelphia Eagles' preseason game on Sept. 1 for being an Axalta All-Pro Teacher.
Krotzer was nominated by a colleague for her work in the classroom. Her students and colleagues were able to watch her be recognized by the Eagles organization for her educational drive, inspiring innovation in the classroom and engaging in community ownership, according to a news release from the school. These three qualities are the criteria for selecting an Axalta All-Pro teacher, according to the Philadelphia Eagles' website.
Krotzer received a $1,000 donation from the organization for school supplies and now has the chance to receive a $10,000 grand prize in December against other teachers from the tri-state area. She also received four tickets to an Eagles home game, one reserved parking spot to that game, a personalized replica Eagles jersey and an invitation for four guests to attend a breakfast awards ceremony.
Any teacher of sixth through 12th grade in Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey is eligible for the award. Current and former students, principals, parents, co-workers or district staff members can nominate a teacher.
If Krotzer is named the Axalta All-Pro Teacher of the Year in December, an Eagles Pep Rally will be hosted at Susquehannock High School, and she will get a certificate for a three- or four-night trip for two people to a resort and spa in Mexico, in addition to the $10,000 grand prize.
“This is a well-deserved honor," Southern School District Superintendent Sandra Lemmon said in the news release. "Laura demonstrates these qualities each day as she makes a difference in the lives of her students, one Warrior at a time."
