John Marshall High School business, marketing and accounting teacher Megan Pintus has been nominated for the 2018-2019 national LifeChanger of the Year award.
Pintus was recognized as a LifeChanger for going above and beyond to create opportunities for students to succeed. She sees the value of achievement both in the classroom and in Career and Technical student organizations. Pintus helps to organize fundraising experiences and creates positive learning games for students so they can learn the concepts of her classroom materials.
Pintus was nominated by an anonymous colleague. “She treat everyone’s project as her own and makes her entire school a more successful place by helping everyone with their work,” said the nominator.
Sponsored by the National Life Group Foundation, LifeChanger of the Year recognizes and rewards the very best K-12 educators and school district employees across the United States who are making a difference in the lives of students by exemplifying excellence, positive influence and leadership.
Each school year, LifeChanger of the Year receives hundreds of nominations from all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Seventeen individual LifeChanger of the Year awards will be given during the 2018-2019 school year.
Winners are announced via surprise award ceremonies held at their schools. The grand prize finalists will also be honored at a national awards ceremony in April 2019 in Hawaii, where the Grand Prize Winner will be revealed.
