Webster Schroeder High School Regents and advanced placement chemistry teacher Siobhan Julian is the recipient of the 2018 Science Teachers Association of New York (STANYS) Excellence in Teaching Award for the High School Level. 

Not only does Julian epitomize Webster CSD’s vision: Compassionately Connected, Joyfully Engaged, Always Learning, she also exemplifies all of the qualities of STANYS’ mission. They are:
  • To promote excellence in science education,
  • To work with educators and communities to provide opportunities for all students to participate in and learn science,
  • To support student-centered education that excites and invites participation by all students,
  • And to share exemplary curriculum and effective teaching practices based on research.
In the classroom Julian employs teaching strategies that include process oriented guided inquiry learning, flipped learning, and modeling, all of which engage her students to be active learners.
 
WCSD Director of Science and Technology, Bill Ottman, wrote a letter of recommendation for Julian. In it he shared her love for her students. “That love drives her to be the best teacher possible,” Ottman wrote.
 
Perhaps what makes receiving the 2018 STANYS Excellence in Teaching Award for the High School Level even more meaningful for Julian, who was presented the honor during STANYS’ annual meeting in November, is that a teacher from Fairport CSD, Donna Himmelberg, nominated her.
