Meet the 2015-16 Milken Educator Award WinnersPhoto 36 of 37
Lauren Wilson (VA '15) | Math teacher, C.D. Hylton High School | Woodbridge, VA
Date of Award: March 3, 2016
A graduate of the school where she teaches, Lauren Wilson works with math students across the spectrum of ability with great success. She is well-known throughout the district and conducted a workshop for math professional development after only three years in the district. Due to her promotion of the co-teaching model, the school has been selected as a demonstration site by the Virginia Department of Education Excellence in its Co-Teaching initiative. Wilson is the lead mentor at Hylton, meeting regularly with her mentees to offer guidance and constructive feedback. She plans, organizes and presents at monthly meetings to provide continuous support to teachers, which has translated to engaging classrooms where students are challenged and succeeding academically. Wilson also coaches volleyball and soccer at the school; to help incoming freshman girls get acclimated to their new school, she created a summer volleyball program, which other high schools in the area have since replicated.
