Logan receives teaching honor
Cindy Logan displays the award that she received when she was honored as the Arkansas Middle School Teacher of the Year. Logan is a mathematics teacher at Walnut Ridge School.
Cindy Logan, a mathematics teacher in the Walnut Ridge Middle Level Building, was recently honored as the Arkansas Middle School Teacher of the Year by the Oklahoma-Arkansas Section of the mathematical association of America.
Logan was presented with a recognition plaque at a banquet held at Northeastern University in Tahlequah, Oklahoma.
The recognition reads: "We salute you for excellence in mathematics teaching and acknowledge your contribution to students by your imparting both knowledge of and enthusiasm for mathematics. Your innovative teaching strategies and high standards in the classroom are models for the profession and provide inspiration to other teachers."
Those recommending Mrs. Logan for this award included an administrator, a colleague and a former student.
Her colleague, Angela Brady, mentioned the "passion" she has for her job as well as her "dedication" and her willingness to help students and fellow teachers as well as her seeking new ideas by attending workshops.
Her principal, Charles Lee, referred to Logan's arriving early and staying late in order to be prepared and to assist students needing extra help. He also commented that she accepts a key goal of the educational system, which is to ensure that all students learn.
"She sets high standards for her students and works with them to see that they are successful," Chance Weeks, a former student, said. "To put it simply, she instilled in me a love of math." Weeks also commented that "in Mrs. Logan, you have a nominee who is selfless, passionate, intelligent and perhaps most of all, persistent."
Logan currently teaches seventh grade math, eighth grade math and pre-algebra and the eighth grade Algebra I class. She was accompanied to the banquet in Oklahoma by her husband, Scott.
