Indian Creek ag teacher wins state award

Corinne Wengelewski, agriculture teacher at Indian Creek High School for the past two years, was recently awarded the “Teachers Turn the Key” award through the Illinois Association of Vocational Agriculture Teachers.

This award is for second- through third-year agriculture teachers and is based on the teacher’s teaching philosophy, instruction, getting students involved in events such as SAEs, participation of the chapter in FFA, partnerships made within the community such as Adopt a Highway, After School Ag Program and working with local seed companies, how the agriculture program and FFA Chapter are promoted within the school and community, and professional growth.

Since Wengelewski has earned this award at the state level, her application now advances to the national level through the National Association of Agricultural Educators. Winning this award allows Wengelewski to attend the National Association of Agriculture Educators Convention for free through NAAE in December.
