“I feel tremendously honored to receive this award from the University of Chicago,” Chan said.
Each year the university invites entering first-year students to nominate an educator who has influenced them, challenged them, or helped them along the path of intellectual growth. Chan was selected out of hundreds of letters that were submitted.
“I am extremely fortunate and lucky to have the opportunity to make an impact on my students’ lives. It provides great encouragement to boost my passion and continue to achieve excellence in my career.”
Chan teaches AP Environmental Science at Clements High School. He’s been teaching since 2008.
