Ms. Courtney, one of Orr's fabulous math teachers, was honored at the 3rd annual Heart of Education Awards on Friday, April 20. 850 teachers were invited to the event, which was held at the Smith Center. The evening was filled with music, comedy, and inspiration from a variety of local Las Vegas talent. Much to her surprise, Ms. Courtney won one of 20 $5,000 awards given that night. Her recognition also earned the school an additional $1,000! While interviewed on stage, Ms. Courtney was asked why mentoring teachers was important to her. She responded, "It's important to be there for someone, because you need someone to be there for you." Please help us congratulate Ms. Courtney on her great achievement!
