ALC Teacher Receives 2018 Gold Star Award

   Joe Schingen, Area Learning Center and Academic Excellence Online High School (AEO), is the recipient of the 2018 Goldfine Gold Star Teacher Award. Andy Goldfine made the announcement at a reception at Lincoln Park Middle School Wednesday evening during which he presented Schingen with a trophy and a $5,000 check.
   In the nomination materials, Schingen is described as open, welcoming and inviting in his classroom, inspiring students of all backgrounds and abilities to succeed and develop a love of learning. 
   Manley and Lillian Goldfine established a fund for the Gold Star Teacher Award in 2006 through the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation, to honor inspirational Duluth Public School teachers for their dedication, skills and hard work. Last year elementary school teachers were nominated for the award; this year middle and high school teachers were nominated.
