Entomological Foundation announces 2013 Insect Science Award winners
Date:9/11/2013

HIEVEMENT IN PRIMARY EDUCATIONThis award, which is sponsored by the Entomological Society of America, recognizes a primary school educator (grades K-6) who has gone beyond the traditional teaching methods by using insects as educational tools. Laura Gagnon is the school library media specialist at Joseph B. Radez Elementary in Cobleskill-Richmondville School District, located about 40 minutes west of Albany, New York. She received a BA in social studies education (grades 7-12) from the College of Saint Rose in Albany, and her MSIS from the State University of New York at Albany. As a librarian for a school of 460 students in grades three through five, she teaches 21 classes a week in information literacy skills and provides resources to staff and students to support the curriculum. She incorporates the talents of members of the local learning community, which have included astronauts, archaeologists, historians, videographers, authors, veterinarians, soil scientists, and farmers. Her daily collaborations and co-teaching projects have won numerous awards, including the New York State Archives Student Research Award. Her interest in entomology was ignited by master beekeepers Bob and Alyson Montione.

PRESIDENT'S PRIZE FOR OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENT IN SECONDARY EDUCATIONThis award, which is sponsored by the Entomological Society of America, recognizes a secondary school educator (grades 7-12) who has gone beyond the traditional teaching methods by using insects as educational tools. Joyce Forand-Voorhis is a biology teacher employed at Brockton High School, an urban public high school of 4,500 students in Southern Massachusetts. Joyce finds that insects are often overlooked in standardized test-driven biology classes, but can be used to inspire in students a sense of awe of the vast diversity and complexity of life on our planet. Insects are also a perfect, easy-to-find, inexpensive vehicle that can be used to direct inquiry-based scientific learning.
