St. Clair High School teacher Ben Martin was named a Peabody Energy Leader in Education for the 2013-14 school year and was awarded $1,000 for his dedication and commitment to students. Martin was “surprised” with his honor at SCHS on Tuesday.
“Ben’s passion for kids is incredible,” said his principal, Mike Hunter. “He spends countless hours working for kids, but more importantly he spends countless hours dreaming for them. He constantly motivates students to become better people not just for the world but for themselves. He treats all kids by the golden rule, and every last one knows he cares. Ben’s lessons go beyond the classroom, and that is what teaching is all about.”
