2007 Kansas Master Teachers Announced

Spring 2007

Emporia State University announces seven teachers as the 2007 Kansas Master Teachers. They are Rob Davis, Blue Valley; Robin Dixon, Auburn Washburn; Shelley R. Faerber, Manhattan-Ogden; Diane Ladenburger, Pratt; Marilyn McComber, Emporia; Angela K. Miller, Junction City; and Elouise Miller, Hays.

The Kansas Master Teacher Award celebrated its 54th anniversary this year with the induction of the teachers on March 7.

Emporia State University has honored 384 teachers since the annual award was founded in 1954. According to awards committee chairman Lori Mann, Kansas Master Teachers are educators who have “served the profession long and well, and who also typify the good qualities of earnest and conscientious teachers.”

Nominations come from local teacher associations, educational organizations and colleagues. A committee representing educational organizations across Kansas selects the finalists in February. The seven chosen teachers will be honored with a day of tours, seminars and receptions on March 7 at Emporia State University.

Bank of America has underwritten the Kansas Master Teachers program for over 20 years.
