Sturgeon Bay Teacher Cliff Wind Receives Kohl Foundation Honor

 

A teacher at Sturgeon Bay High School has been named one of the 2013 recipients of the Fellowship Award from the Herb Kohl Educational Foundation.

Math teacher Cliff Wind is one of just 100 teachers statewide to receive the honor. 

Sturgeon Bay High School Principal Bob Nickel says Wind "lives and breathes math" but he's also able to instill a love of math in his students.

"One of the most specific things that a math teacher can do is break math education down into its simplest components and Cliff is able to do that," says Nickel. "At the same time he has his self-created "Wind-isms" that are like little rules that go along with how to analyze the math and make things work out properly."

Nickel says Wind -- who's taught at the school for 19 years -- is not only a top-notch teacher, he's a valued member of the faculty.

The Kohl Foundation Scholarship and Fellowship Program was established by retired U.S. Sen. Herb Kohl in 1990. Fellowship recipients are chosen for their superior ability to inspire a love of learning in their students, their ability to motivate others, and for their leadership and service within and outside the classroom. Each Fellow's school will also receive a $1,000 grant.

Wind will receive his award at a recognition luncheon Saturday, April 13 at Red Smith Elementary School in Green Bay.
