Trevor MacDuff, a teacher at River’s Edge High School, is one of the winners of the Award For Excellence in Science Teaching of the Washington Science Teachers Association.
The annual awards are aimed at recognizing science teachers who are culturally responsive in their instruction, promote science education outside the classroom, positively impact student learning and inspire student interest and excitement in science.
The award comes with a $500 prize and registration for the association’s annual conference and awards ceremony in Portland in late October.
MacDuff has taught in the Richland School District since the 1999-2000 school year with stints at Hanford High School, Enterprise and Leona Libby middle schools and Three Rivers HomeLink. He started at River’s Edge in the 2018-19 school year and is part of the instructional team that is transitioning the school to a project-learning based model. His current courses are focused on “tiny home” design and hiking.
