Ted Cohn, a Clover Park School District teacher, and Eric Miller, a staff member of the Steilacoom Historical School District, were recognized recently by the Rotary Club of Lakewood as its Teachers of the Month.
Cohn teaches English at Lakes High School. He consistently works with the entire English Department to assure students make solid progression throughout the high school experience, according to Lakes Assistant Principal Matt Oberst.
Heading up Steilacoom High Schools athletic department, Miller is now in his tenth year in the district. He has ushered in to the students an emphasis on healthy lifestyles such as walking fitness, eating right and doing what’s best. In 2002 he was named Washington’s 2A football coach of the year.
Tony Robinson, a member of the Lakewood Rotary Club, made the presentations to the teachers of the month, a practice the club follows throughout the school year.
The 130-member Lakewood Rotary Club recognizes a teacher each month from the Clover Park and Steilacoom Historical School Districts as well as a student of the month from each of the districts.
Lakewood Rotary Club has been supporting the community since it was chartered more than 50 years ago. The organization meets each Friday noon at the Tacoma Country & Golf Club. Greg Horn is currently president of the community service and philanthropic organization.
