NORTH BEND – Only one teacher from Nebraska was presented with a national award for teaching excellence this year, and she applies her craft at North Bend Central Elementary.
Fifth grade teacher Becky Streff was presented with a Milken Education Award during a special school assembly on March 4th. Streff was one of 33 recipients of the national recognition for 2018-19, which was been called the “Oscars of Teaching” by Teacher magazine.
The Milken Education Awards are meant to provide public recognition to elementary school teachers, principals, and specialists who are furthering excellence in education. Along with the award, Streff also received an unrestricted $25,000 cash prize.
