Anna Diller Stried, Math teacher, Buckeye Valley High School, Delaware.

Mrs. Anna Diller-Stried is the epitome of everything that teaching Math should encompass.

A colleague of Anna says; "she empowers students to have the skills to not just understand math but actually comprehend the reasons for doing it along with the process of how it all ties together with previous skills." A student describes her as "an outstanding teacher who always goes the extra mile for her students."

Her classroom is one where students are engaged in learning. They know that she cares about them, but above all else they know that she cares about their education and they strive to meet her high but achievable expectations. She is ready and willing to teach all level of learners and challenges herself on a daily basis to learn new strategies, and methods to become an even greater educator.
