Bosse math teacher earns leadership award | News
Amy Bonenberger of Benjamin Bosse High School was named a Peabody Energy Leader in Education for the 2012-13 school year, and awarded $1,000 for her compassion and commitment to students.
As Bosse High’s math teacher, Bonenberger’s leadership extends beyond the classroom. In addition to managing the Bosse Transition Learning School for at-risk freshmen, Bonenberger coordinates the school’s International Baccalaureate Diploma Program, in which she meets with faculty members to alert them of changes in curriculum or assessment; and handles the budget and arranges professional development for teachers. She goes beyond her duties at the high school level and teaches a night class at the University of Southern Indiana.
The Peabody Energy Leaders in Education program rewards dedicated education professionals—from teachers and coaches to librarians and counselors—who inspire and motivate youth to succeed. Award recipients are selected throughout the school year by a committee of top educators and business leaders.
“Outstanding educators like Amy Bonenberger are the heroes who help students find their true potential to succeed,” said Greg Boyce, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Peabody Energy. “We are pleased to honor Amy as a Peabody Energy Leader in Education, and we thank her for working diligently to transform the lives of her students.”
The Leaders program was developed in Missouri in 2009, and reflects Peabody’s commitment to make a positive impact in the communities where the company’s employees live and work by honoring those who inspire students. The 2012-2013 award program is continuing to accept nominations and is open to educational professionals of public, private and independent schools in designated communities where Peabody Energy employees live and work. Nominations may be made at www.PeabodyEnergyLeadersInEducation.org.
Honorees are selected from a diverse group of educators. They can range from veteran teachers to individuals in support staff roles such as administrators, coaches or counselors.
