2017-18 Milken EducatorsPhoto 44 of 44
Shannon Hill, who became Wyoming's 2017-18 Milken Educator on January 5, 2018, at Thermopolis Middle School, firmly believes that healthy bodies help students learn. The physical education and health teacher has redesigned the school's PE classes, which now include cross-curricular activities like bike rides to a nearby grocery store to purchase fresh ingredients for cooking lessons, complete with nutritional analysis. As students have become more active, math and reading scores at Thermopolis Middle School have steadily climbed—and administrators credit the positive culture Shannon has helped to create.
