Local Teacher Receives Big Award

By  | 

Brian McClain of Godby High School was chosen by science teachers across Florida for the "Outstanding High School Science Teacher Award."

"It was a great honor. A lot of times teachers get bogged down by FCAT preparation and a lot of attention is just given to standardized testing, so it was nice this award recognized the wide range of activities and involvement that teachers have," said Brian McClain, who received the award.

McClain received a plaque and a check worth $500, but he said it's not about receiving individual awards, but about giving back to the classroom.
