Local teacher honored by Arc Minnesota

November 25, 2013 by  

The Arc Minnesota recently named Kathy Lukin, a teacher with the North St. Paul-Maplewood-Oakdale School District, as ‘Teacher of the Year’. The school district is close to New Brighton and is no doubt using a variety of printing services to let those in the district become aware of this distinction.

As a non-profit organization that supports and protects those people who have developmental and intellectual disabilities, it offered Lukin this accolade for her dedication to and hard work to educate students with special and multiple needs. Lukin creates new opportunities for learning for her students by putting in additional hours before school on the weekends.

Lukin has been a teacher for 36 years and now teaches kindergarten through second-graders in District 622 at Oakdale Elementary. She has been with the school district since 1991.

Lukin commented that the recognition from The Arc Minnesota was a complete surprise. According to the communications director for The Arc Minnesota, Mike Gude, Lukin was chosen by the organization for the extra effort and time she puts in to care for and educate her students. Gude added that she is very committed to making sure that her students are included both inside and outside the classroom.

Lukin added that, although she was the single educator to get the award, it required a great deal of collaboration with families and other professionals. Her success comes from using customizing teaching strategies for each student, as what might work for one student may not work for another.
