Highland View Academy Teacher Wins Science Award
Story by HVA Staff
The $2,500 prize goes to the school’s science program. Barizo along with Deborah Treviño, HVA principal, will travel to the NSTA’s National Conference on Science Education in San Francisco, March 10-13, where Barizo will be honored at the Teachers Awards Banquet.
“I never expected to receive this award, but I am both honored and humbled that our science program is being recognized nationally,” Barizo says. “I praise the Lord for His goodness! I am excited about getting some funds for the enhancement of science education at HVA.”
Barizo, who has been at HVA for 15 years, teaches chemistry, environmental science and forensic science. She has also raised some $750,000 in grant funding for HVA’s science projects, technology, textbooks, field trips, native trees and perennials and professional development for teachers. She and her environmental science class are featured in Pearson Education’s 2011 Environmental Science textbook.
Based in Arlington, Va., the NSTA is the largest professional organization in the world promoting excellence and innovation in science teaching and learning. Membership includes more than 58,000 science teachers, supervisors, administrators, scientists, business and industry representatives and others involved in science education.
