Chaffee Elementary Educator Named AFA State Teacher of the Year
Lori Nelson says this “was an unbelievable honor. When they said my name, my heart just started pounding.” Driesbach stated that the Air Force Association “gets lots and lots of applications and Ms. Nelson was clearly the winner. We are proud to recognize Lori Nelson for her dedication to STEM education and for making a difference in the lives of students and our community.” Principal Christina Spivey says Ms. Nelson is a fantastic teacher that often has students standing up, participating in experiments or even singing along to original songs that connect with her lessons.”
As a recipient of the chapter and state awards, Nelson was also presented with checks for $250 and $500. All state winners will compete to earn recognition at the AFA National level next year.
