Pend Oreille Teacher Honored by Who's Who

Earl Brockman, Pend Oreille Valley Adventist School principal and seventh- through ninth-grade teacher for the last six years, has been selected for inclusion in the eighth edition of Who's Who Among America's Teachers. The five percent of teachers nationwide chosen for this award are among the most influential educators who make a difference in students' lives.

The students invited to submit nominations are those who have distinguished themselves for excellence in either Who's Who Among American High School Students or The National Dean's List, which honor the best and brightest high school and college students.

Brockman felt honored to have been nominated by Lisa Malakowsky, a former ninth-grade student who went on to earn scholastic honors while finishing her high school years at the House of the Lord, a Christian high school near Oldtown, Idaho.

During his 40 years of teaching, Brockman has been honored with the Zapara Award for Excellence in Teaching and also the Don Keele Award. His teaching qualifications include a denominational professional certificate and teaching credentials in Washington and Idaho. He is known for his creative approaches to teaching and fostering positive school spirit, as well as his keen emphasis on scholastic achievement.
