Tiffany Tynes Curry (OH '16) | Third-grade teacher, Weinland Park Elementary School | Columbus, OH
Date of Award: January 24, 2017
"Despite what society may say, you have the opportunity to achieve anything and everything that you may want," an emotional Tiffany Tynes Curry told students at her surprise Award notification. "I was raised to be a statistic, but I didn't let that stop me. I put myself through school, and I know that hard work really pays off." Tiffany, a graduate of Columbus City Schools, transforms her third-grade students into mathematicians who develop their own theories, explain their reasoning with ease and present their methodologies to the class. Weinland Park’s fourth-graders turn in the highest performance in the division cohort for math and science, in large part due to the foundation they get the previous year with her in third grade.
