Jackie Honghern is a science teacher at the Phoenix School of Discovery. She is a former recipient of a Hilliard Lyons Excellence Award for her teaching. Jackie engages her students by giving them experiences rather than just teaching them the content. When you enter her classroom, you don’t just see a lecture but you see her students all working on their own projects. Jackie goes above and beyond and not only provides experiences for her students in the classroom, but she also takes as many field trips as she can, to allow them to see things they would ordinarily not have the opportunity to see.
